Skyline Plaza Parking Garage named Best Government/Public project of 2016 by ENR Midwest.  This project has been recognized for it's transformative effect with the revitalization of downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Housed within the first level of the garage are several retail spaces and restaurants.  The garage sits below the Ash Brokerage office building.  The appeal of the garage is linked to the colorful facade lighting that was designed by Primary Engineering and incporporates color shifting LED that allow for the building to be a canvas for the community.

The parking decks are lit with high efficiency LED fixtures that automatically adjust their light levels to be brighter when there are cars and people in the space and then reduce lighting energy when the garage is unoccupied.  Each fixture contains motion sensors to that the light will follow each car and occupant as theymove thrugh the garage.
