Zacher Co. of Fort Wayne to help lease Electric Works
The development team behind Electric Works has selected brokerage teams from two firms for its national and local/ regional commercial leasing.
RTM Ventures has selected the Indianapolis office of global commercial real estate services firm JLL as its national leasing partner, effective immediately, and Fort Wayne-based The Zacher Co. as its local/regional leasing representative.
The JLL and Zacher leasing teams will work to identify and engage local, regional and national commercial and office prospects, working closely with Greater Fort Wayne Inc., the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to support the region’s economic development strategy. Creative office, institutional, and innovation space is planned to comprise more than 300,000 square feet of the project’s approximately 700,000 square feet overall for West Campus.
With a global workforce of nearly 90,000 across 80-plus countries, JLL specializes in real estate and investment management. Founded in 1961 by Al Zacher, The Zacher Co. lists, sells and leases more industrial and commercial real estate in northeast Indiana and the surrounding region than any other brokerage firm.
“The Zacher Co. is excited to be involved in a project with such a transformative impact on our community,” Steve Zacher, president and managing broker, said in a statement.
Electric Works has announced leases or letters of intent with several organizations in the past few months, including Fort Wayne Metals, Parkview Health, Medical Informatics Engineering, Three Rivers Music Theatre, and Rush Rock Gym, a climbing gym and adventure park.
