Progress continues to be made on the Renaissance Pointe development in southeast Fort Wayne. Several streets in the development area have been converted from one-way streets to two-way streets.

* Weisser Park Avenue

* John Street

* Gay Street

* Smith Street

* Oliver Street

* Bowser Avenue

A key component of the urbanist-style development is to promote walkability so that residents can take advantage of the many amenities the neighborhood has to offer. Two-way streets serve to slow traffic and discourage speeding and are more suitable for pedestrian safety. 

Renaissance Pointe calls for nearly 400 new homes, the rehabilitation of more than 100 existing homes, a greenway trail, and improved infrastructure. The Renaissance Pointe area is bounded by Creighton Avenue on the north, Pontiac Street on the south, Hanna Street on the west, and South Anthony Boulevard on the east. The development is scheduled to begin this fall, with model units to be constructed in spring 2007.
