One team submitted a proposal to city leaders to develop the North River property.
Four groups responded to the city’s request for qualifications. All four were asked to put together proposals to submit to city by Tuesday, August 14. A spokesman for the city confirmed to NewsChannel 15 only one developer met the deadline, Continental Property Group.
Continental Property Group’s plan centered around Headwaters Junction. The railroad-based museum and entertainment venue would occupy a portion of the 30 acres north of downtown Fort Wayne, along Clinton St. The team set up meetings ahead of the deadline, updating the public on the plan and asking for input for the other acres available for development.
IU Health was among the other three parties interested in the land.
If more than one proposal was submitted, a decision on what developer would build on the land was expected to come in the fall, with construction starting in the end of 2019.
