A long-vacant building on Broadway just north of Creighton Avenue is being repaired and renovated. Workers are replacing the windows and repairing and repainting the exterior at 2219 Broadway, which borders the Zesto ice cream stand on the north.

Brian Schaper, one of the owners of Metro Real Estate in Fort Wayne, bought the building through another company. He said a $20,000 facade grant from the city of Fort Wayne helped persuade him to fix up the building and seek tenants. He expects to spend more than $100,000 eventually on the work. He said he plans to offer the first floor in one or two commercial spaces, with two apartments in its second story.
