Details

Indiana Michigan Power Center, previously known as One Summit Square and also as the Summit National Bank Building after one of its original tenants, is the tallest office building in Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States, as well as the tallest reinforced concrete building in the state of Indiana.The Indiana Michigan Power Center is a Modern 27-story building which stands at 134.7 m (442 ft). Designed by Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates, the building is unique in that it was built to give the illusion of two buildings, the adjoining tower housing the elevators. The original plan called for a second 20-story office tower and a 9-story hotel that were never built. The additional towers were canceled due to the financial difficulties of People's Trust Bank, which was forced to merge with Indiana Bank to form Summit Bank. The recession of 1981-1982 and a change in contractors midway through the project that led to cost overruns led to the completion of only one tower instead of the initially planned three. A plaza with trees and landscaping now resides on the land where the other towers were to have been built, which is now home to food trucks, community events, and farmer's markets.Originally, the tenants of One Summit Square were electricity provider Indiana Michigan Power along with Summit Bank and its holding company Summcorp (the largest bank in Fort Wayne at the time). Through a succession of mergers, One Summit Square eventually became the Northeast Indiana market headquarters for JPMorgan Chase. However, Indiana Michigan Power is the primary tenant. In addition to local market and middle-market commercial banking offices, JPMorgan Chase continues to maintain a Chase retail banking branch (with three ATMs) on the first floor. This branch was renovated in the fall of 2016. Barnes & Thornburg was a tenant until the spring of 2016 when Ash Skyline Plaza opened.
