FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): You can’t win if you don’t show up, and when it comes to proposals for the North River property near Science Central in downtown Fort Wayne, only one developer got their proposal in on time.
According to the News-Sentinel, the Continental Property Group’s proposal for Headwaters Junction, which includes an event center, the complete restoration of the Nickel Plate Locomotive No. 765, and a train connection to the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, was the only one submitted on time for the city-owned land.
That’s doesn’t mean it’s a sure thing, however, as the City will still evaluate the proposal and choose whether or not to go with it.
The City bought the 29-acre parcel north of the St. Marys River, formerly a scrap yard, for $4.63-million last year. Indiana University Health was one of the four entities that had expressed interest in the property.
