dc.description.abstract The project examines the architectural and financial feasibility of adaptive reuse of the Pennsylvania Station at Fort Wayne, Indiana, as an international cultural center and railroad passenger station. The project summarizes the results of primary research which determined the history of the station's original construction and subsequent alterations, as well as the property's associations with the history of Fort Wayne. The narrative also provides an illustrated summary of the current physical condition of the site and its two structures. The proposal for adaptive reuse includes an Amtrak rail passenger facility, shops, a restaurant, and classroom and dormitory areas to be used as a campus of the International Education Center, a school based in Tokyo, Japan. The proposed rehabilitation work is described in terms of its impact upon the historic features of the property, and the design issues involved are stated, as well as the major elements of the proposed work. An itemized budget for all proposed construction is provided.Based upon current rents in the project area, financial comparison of the investment needed with projected returns determined that the project would provide an acceptable acceptable rate of return on the required investment. The study concluded that the project would be both financially and architecturally viable.
