HEY EVERYONE, I’M DAVE BROUGH. WE TALK ABOUT WHAT IT’S LIKE TO LIVE, PLAY, EAT, WORK, SLEEP IN FORT WAYNE.
Wayne street is a place with some bars and restaurants, like Proximo, Ruth’s Chris, JK’s-an Irish pub, Big Apple pizza, and Poptique Gourmet Popcorn.
There’s a few units available in the Midtown Condos, and they range in price from $100,000-175,000. They are one or two bedroom condos, and they’re in a good spot. You’re in a really convenient location right downtown, and you can get to anywhere in Fort Wayne in a matter of minutes. If you’re single, or you’re not planning on having kids, and you like the downtown feel, definitely check out Midtown.
Typically on warmer days there will be a lot of people on the street walking around. One of my favorite coffee spots is Fortezza Coffee, and it’s right across the street from Pint & Slice. They have really good pizza, and you can get some beer with your meal. One thing you’ll notice in Fort Wayne is we’ve got a lot of murals, which I’ve actually used them for some video backdrops!
Some other things in the area: Dash-In, another cool restaurant Downtown, the Allen County Courthouse, the Anthony Wayne building with some luxury condos, a boutique hotel, and Columbia Street Banquet Hall. For the longest time, these were just empty old buildings, and then a big investment was made. Now, they’ve added retail, restaurants, and some living spaces on what’s called The Landing here. There are some clubs, more retail, a Utopian coffee shop, The Landing Beer Company, an amazing furniture store called House to Home, a salon owned by my friend, Promenade Park with a pavilion and outdoor ping pong tables. You can get some beer at the local brewery next door, an outdoor foosball table made out of concrete, and outdoor cornhole.
One problem with downtown is there’s not enough housing inventory to meet the demand. For the longest time no one really wanted to live downtown, but ever since they built places like Promenade Park and the baseball stadium, people want to be around the area. So, we’re behind on having a supply of inventory, but that’s in the works. There’s only a few condos available in all of Downtown Fort Wayne, and there’s a few apartments coming up. One condo just opened up outside of the downtown area, right beside GE and the baseball stadium. It’s the first development in this area, and it’s blowing up; it’s luxury in Fort Wayne.
I hope this information was a little helpful. If you have any questions, just call, text, or email me.
