FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Officials in Fort Wayne have agreed to stop demolition of a building that once was used by the city’s police department as a landmarks group tries to determine if it can buy the property or find a developer.

WANE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2nNH484 ) that the city agreed Friday to stop demolition of the former Bowser buildings. The work had started Thursday.

City spokesman John Perlich tells the television station that the delay will allow Indiana Landmarks to discuss the property with the McMillen Foundation, which owns the buildings. Indiana Landmarks saves, restores and repurposes historic buildings.

The television station reports that the McMillen Foundation had planned to turn over the property for use by the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne.
