Brightpoint proposes entrepreneurial housing development in Fort Wayne

Brightpoint has proposed a housing development at 800 W. Rudisill Blvd called Enterprise Pointe. The development will include 48-units of affordable rental housing targeting small business owners, entrepreneurs, artists, and artisans. Amenities will be provided to residents to help develop successful small businesses, including conference space, meeting rooms, private offices, a copy/mail room, built-in workspace in each apartment, and an equipment library to house various tools of production. A variety of partners will help support entrepreneurs in residence and the Brightpoint Development Fund (formerly CANI’s Center for Community and Economic Development) will provide educational and technical support as well as a special loan product to residents.

On May 13th a meeting was held to inform residents of the proposed development. The PowerPoint and FAQs from that meeting are available here:
