FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — The city of Fort Wayne is looking for ideas for the design of its planned downtown riverfront promenade.
The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette reports that proposals are due Sept. 8. One is expected to be chosen by the end of October. Proposals should include designs and construction documents for the first part of the St. Mary's River riverfront development project.
Consultants should be qualified in landscape architecture, engineering, architecture and urban and graphic design. Designs must be within an $8 million construction budget.
Mayor Tom Henry calls it "an important next step" in making the riverfront an engine of economic growth in the city. Fort Wayne planners say they want a design that is high-quality and unique to the city.
