    Register

    Join us as we return to Fort Wayne at the stunning Union Street Market, located in the historic Electric Works campus. This site dates back to the 1880s with the founding of the Fort Wayne Jenney Electric Company, which pioneered the commercial electrical outdoor lighting system known as the Jenney Arc Light. In 1898, General Electric acquired the company and shifted its focus from lighting to electric motor manufacturing. The plant became renowned for its innovation, producing the first modern refrigerator, the electric garbage disposal, and numerous advancements in electric motors and transformers.

    By the late 1940s, GE employed about 40% of Fort Wayne's workforce. Designed by the esteemed architectural firm Harris & Richards of Philadelphia, the campus was home to the manufacturing of electrical apparatus, including fractional electrical motors for appliances and electrical transformers. During World War II, this significant industrial site played a crucial role in supporting the war effort.

    We are excited to kick off our first Fort Wayne event of the year at this historic location, where CRE professionals will have the opportunity to connect over food and drinks. Join us to network and experience the rich history and vibrant future of Electric Works.

    Join us at Ruth's Chris for an exclusive preview with Ben Blair and Abe Benson from Faegre Drinker. They will share insights from their upcoming BOMA International presentation, "Improving Competitive Advantage Through Property Tax Mitigation." Learn how advanced planning and proactive tax appeal strategies can turn fixed expenses into strategic opportunities.

    In today's challenging market, office and industrial properties must leverage every advantage to maintain their competitive edge. With rising interest rates and capitalization rates, and the lasting impacts of the pandemic reshaping real estate usage, the best-positioned and best-managed properties will thrive while others may falter.

    Property taxes, often perceived as a fixed cost, play a crucial role in distinguishing commercial properties. These taxes can significantly impact the return on investment for owners and the occupancy costs for tenants. By strategically reducing property taxes, properties can gain a competitive edge in attracting and retaining tenants.
