Ash Skyline Plaza

More Pieces in Place


Skyline

With more neighbors and more progress, things are really moving into place at the Ash Skyline Plaza! On Thursday, tax firm DuCharme, McMillen & Associates Inc. announced they will occupy the remaining commercial space available in our building. 

DMA has more than 23 offices throughout the United States and Canada. Their 50 Fort Wayne employees will share the sixth floor of the Plaza with law office Barnes & Thornburg. DMA also plans to expand and create more jobs in the future. 

With DMA’s announcement, the Ash Skyline Plaza’s retail and commercial spaces are full. Our other neighbors include Lake City Bank, DeBrand Fine Chocolates, Skyline YMCA, The Golden and The Find. We can’t wait to welcome everyone this summer! 

Of course, we’re also excited to see more neighbors coming in the adjacent Skyline Tower, a residential, retail and office building being developed by Great Lakes Capital. A Ruth’s Chris Steak House will also be opening there in the fall of 2017. 

 

If that doesn't get you energized for downtown Fort Wayne, maybe these pictures will! Our photographer went in the building today for a closer look. Check out the progress below!

This is the cyclorama wall in our recording studio. It will provide a seamless background for our videos.

The Skyline YMCA has some great looking flooring ready to go, as well as the start of a desk and lockers.

Heating Up!


Skyline

While the weather is warming up outside, progress is heating up inside our new downtown headquarters. Recently, our friends at Weigand Construction were kind enough to take our team members on a tour for pictures of the interior. Clearly, their crews are working hard! 

As you can see below, ceilings and light fixtures are in place, and in most areas, walls are up and ready for paint (or already painted!). The underfloor utilities are coming along on the eighth and ninth floors, with the access flooring and carpet to be installed by the end of the month. 

Crews are also working inside our three-story atrium, as the terrazzo flooring will be installed there soon. Finally, they say our elevators should be fully functional by April - another great sign we're on track to move in before summer! 

Below: Walls, ceilings and the start of flooring - three important elements that are making our building's interior look like a real office.

Looking up from inside our cafeteria, you can see what will soon be Tim Ash's office.

Check out the view from inside Tim's office - gorgeous!

We're so excited to work INSIDE our building, we can't imagine working from the outside like the man below!

This is one of two terraces we'll have on the seventh floor.

Inside the atrium, walls and stairs are in progress - the terrazzo flooring is next.

And finally, our incredible view of the downtown Fort Wayne skyline from inside the atrium.
