FORT WAYNE, Ind. (FOX 55) - The Cambray Building embarked on a journey to its final resting place Tuesday morning.
The 123 year-old building was moved from its temporary home on the northeast corner of Harrison Street and Superior Street, to the southeast corner which was part of a city-county parking lot.
People gathered to watch the construction marvel as it closed down parts of Superior. They did run into a snag though with part of the building getting caught on power lines, but once it was clear they were on the move again.
Don Hall’s Restaurant owner Bud Hall and Mayor Tom Henry were on hand today to watch history in motion.
Hall said he never had to deal with something like moving a building. He said "I went into it kind of blind, but I had the city, the county, the redevelopment commission. Had so many people involved in this and pulling for us."
Mayor Henry says he's excited about the location of the building, adding "It’s really something that’s phenomenal and what’s really neat is it’s going to be right across the street from riverfront and that’s exactly what we’ve been wanting to do, was to combine public and private partnerships."
Hall also released a rendering of what the new restaurant will look like. It’ll include two floors of dining and an elevated deck area overlooking what will be Promenade Park.
No word yet on what style of restaurant will go in there or when they expect to open.
