Twenty-four hours after Electric Works developers announced they’d begin offering tours of its campus to the general public, the tours have been fully booked.
Officials with Electric Works said Tuesday that tours for the general public would begin Wednesday and be held at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays each week in May. Tours were free and open to the public, and limited to a maximum of 25 people per tour.
Developer Kevin Erb told NewsChannel 15 Wednesday that those tour options were already booked up – in one day.
Erb said officials were working to offer additional dates for tours, but they have yet to nail down days.
The tours are hosted by members of the project development team, who are available to answer questions and provide updates and important information about the project.
Tours cover the West Campus, which encompasses all of what will be Phase 1 of the redevelopment and adaptive reuse of the former General Electric campus in downtown Fort Wayne. Phase 1 will include more than 600,000 square feet dedicated to office, education, retail, restaurants / food hall / public market, innovation space and residential.
“We continue to experience incredible public support of, and interest in, Electric Works,” explained Josh Parker of RTM Ventures said Tuesday. “So we are very excited to continue engaging with people from throughout the city, county and region – as well as to share our vision for Electric Works and help the community see firsthand the transformational potential of this project.”
