They will have dens and full access to outside space.

The residents along with staff celebrated with a the steel topping out ceremony that included a tree and flag on top of the beam symbolizing no death during construction.

"We're so grateful for the Fort Wayne community. We had a lot of great community leaders step forward and volunteer to help us and sheppard us through this project. We're so grateful for those folks and their expertise and years of experience. The project has just exceeded expectation and we don't even have dry up,” CEO Deb Lambert said.

The whole community is expected to be complete by spring of next year.
