FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The Fort Wayne area community took part in history Monday evening with the official lighting of the sign atop the Electric Works campus.
The lighting took place Monday, Jan. 30 just after 6:15 p.m.
“The Northeast Indiana community has supported the redevelopment of the Electric Works
campus since its inception,” said Katy Silliman, senior experience director for Electric Works.
“This historic site has truly been reborn for innovation and for the future needs of our
community, and we invite community members to join us as we illuminate the new Electric
Festivities started at 5 p.m. with live music from Farmland Jazz Band and food and beverage
specials at Union Street Market.
To prepare for the event, Dynamo Alley was closed to vehicular traffic Jan. 30. Community members continued the celebration inside Union Street Market.
Dan Starr, president and CEO of Do it Best, added, “I know it was difficult for our community to
see the original General Electric sign go dark. As the Do it Best team transitions into our new
world headquarters in Building 26 at Electric Works, we are thrilled to be part of bringing this
important landmark back to downtown Fort Wayne and the Broadway District.”
