FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The current Allen County Jail building sits in downtown Fort Wayne near Promenade Park and a newly constructed apartment complex.

Plans are underway to build a new jail located outside the downtown area in the future and developers in the city see the site as potential.

The question that county officials are still determining is whether to demolish the jail or reuse the space for something else. The county is still figuring out what the cost to demolish would be or how much it costs to renovate the interior of the building for other uses.

The new jail will be built at 2911 Meyer Road.
