FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - While the clock continues to tick on the overdue construction of "the Harrison," Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry remains very confident the downtown project will happen.

Henry tells Indiana’s NewsCenter he was very firm in asking Barry Real Estate to provide an update at next Tuesday’s city council meeting.

The Harrison is the final development of the Harrison Square development and includes a combination of apartments, retail and office space.

A number of factors have delayed the project for more than two years, but the mayor insists it will happen.

Mayor Henry says, “I don't think there's any question that the Harrison will happen. I'm confident that it will. I'm right behind all the other citizens in the city that want it done as soon as possible. I gave Barry Real Estate a very direct suggestion, to use it lightly, to come back to city council on the 31st of this month and to present their information and move forward.”

The latest missed deadline for the project was May first, but that groundbreaking was delayed.
