FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – The Electric Works campus is getting another tenant.
Three Rivers Music Theatre signed a letter of intent to move its existing operations to the Electric Works campus.
The organization says it has seen steady growth and needs more room to expand.
The Electric Works campus will allow them to move rehearsal, performance, and education programs to the space.
“The vibrancy at Electric Works aligns well with our vision and our role in growing and strengthening the arts community in Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana,” Planck said.
“We knew we would not be able to sustain our current location, and we’ve grown beyond our capacity, which is a good thing to have happen. Electric Works will allow us to continue producing bold, innovative theater with a voice otherwise unrepresented in our community.”
It typically holds three musicals a season in addition to a cabaret series.
Fort Wayne Metals, Parkview Health, Indiana Tech, and Medical Informatics Engineering are also future tenants.
Phase 1 of the project is estimated to cost about $284 million. Both phases of the campus are projected to cost around $440 million. The funding for the project is a mix of private and public efforts.
The redevelopment of the Electric Works campus would transform 1.2 million square feet of space for office, retail, residential, hotel and entertainment along the Broadway corridor.
