Embassy Theatre's Robert Goldstine Bridge to be Dedicated

Exciting things are happening in downtown Fort Wayne! And you are invited to be a part. 

We already shared with you the special event taking place Wednesday, September 1 at Noon - the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown ribbon cutting celebration! Well, here's another event to take note of. Immediately following the Courtyard ribbon cutting, Chamber member the Embassy Theatre will dedicate the Robert Goldstine Bridge. This ceremony will take place at 12:30 p.m. The Dedication will take place on the Embassy's third floor pedestrian corridor. The event will honor the project’s funder – the Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission – and thank the Goldstine Foundation, Embassy board of directors and project construction partners for successfully completing the Robert Goldstine Bridge.  

The bridge was designed by MSKTD & Associates and constructed by Gerig-Ottenweller Construction. A plaque to recognize Robert Goldstine’s contributions to the Embassy Theatre and the organizations involved in the project will be unveiled at the dedication.

The Robert Goldstine Bridge, along with the pedestrian corridor, provide the new Marriott with its required walkway for patron access to the Grand Wayne Convention Center. The new access point also gives the Embassy Theatre the opportunity to develop the four floors in the Indiana Hotel that have remained closed for more than 30 years.
