Coming soon, Do it Best will have a new home on the sprawling downtown campus of Electric Works. Spanning 39 acres and including 18 historic buildings, Electric Works will host a mix of office, education, retail, dining, and entertainment space. With such a diverse mix of tenants, Electric Works provides the Do it Best team with the ideal environment to foster innovation, enhance collaboration, and enjoy the things that make Fort Wayne a great place to live and work.
While Do it Best is the anchor tenant of Electric Works, there are dozens of other businesses, educational environments, and retail spaces on the campus as well. With schools like the Fort Wayne Community Schools Amp Lab, Indiana Tech, and Indiana University right next door, businesses like ours will be able to more easily partner with students to offer them real-world experience. Parkview Health, our primary healthcare provider, will also have a neighborhood clinic and pharmacy across the street, enabling our team to easily swing in to pick up prescriptions or get a checkup. The variety of indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the campus further enhance the opportunity to connect and collaborate.
Our new home isn’t all business! The Electric Works campus will have numerous entertainment options open to tenants and the public. Union Street Market, which will be the region’s first food hall and public market, will be the home to a variety of food merchants and the year-round Fort Wayne Farmers Market. Chapman’s Brewing Company recently announced their flagship brewery and taproom will be on-site. In addition to the great food and retail spaces, there will be a basketball court, a classically restored bowling alley, and many other amenities.
Do it Best will occupy most of Building 26, the campus’ second largest building. Our facilities will reflect the culture that Do it Best has always had, and will provide our growing team with the flexible workstations and collaborative spaces necessary for our team to perform most productively. Each floor will have an open break area with fresh coffee and vending options. You’ll want to get to our rooftop deck for your lunch or an impromptu meeting while taking in the best view in town.
Our move to Electric Works further solidifies Do it Best as an employer of choice in the Greater Fort Wayne region. Headquartered in the heart of the city, we can more effectively foster the relationships we’ve grown over the years while making new ones along the way.
