‘Welcome to the Bradley’; Rising downtown hotel has a name

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - The boutique hotel taking shape in downtown Fort Wayne has a name -- "The Bradley."

Visit Fort Wayne on Monday tweeted the new moniker and noted that the hotel was on schedule to open in April.

The name is a reference to Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, the co-founder of Vera Bradley and a partner on the downtown project.

Construction began in the summer of 2019. At the time, reports indicated it could be completed as early as late 2020.

Provenance Hotels -- a Portland, Ore., company that operates boutique properties in cities across the country -- is the developer.
