Welcome to The Landing

Fort Wayne earned its nickname “The Summit City” in the 1800’s when the Wabash and Erie Canal ran through this part of the country, and Fort Wayne was situated at the highest point on the run of the canal. At that time, all canals landed along Canal and Columbia Streets downtown.

Today, this area has a new life, and has become a new point of destination at “The Landing."

On the Landing, visitors can enjoy the Landing Beer Company, Utopian coffee, and other retail and dining areas like Nawa, offering outstanding Asian fusion foods in a spectacular setting.

Where

Located along Columbia Street, The Landing features one block of residential and recreation for visitors and residents. Plus, The Landing is located just a block and a half south of Promenade Park.

Parking is available on-street and at the Plaza garage. (Map)
