As Downtown Fort Wayne continues to grow, the local shopping experience grows with it. The City Exchange shops are designed to house a variety of local retailers in one location to create a cohesive and communal retail experience. To promote entrepreneurship, City Exchange features fifteen shop spaces that are appealing and flexible to the individual shop owners. The windows into each shop allow visibility from the main lobby. The lighting was designed to be flexible for each shop owner. The shopping center has an open feel, with exposed ceilings and concrete.
