One Summit Square, also known as the Summit 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.
One Summit Square is a Modern 27-story steel frame 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 12-story hotel that were never built. A plaza with trees and landscaping now resides on the land where the other towers were to have been built.
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; Indiana Michigan Power also remains a tenant. In addition to J.P. Morgan wealth management and local market offices, JPMorgan Chase continues to maintain a Chase retail banking branch (with drive-thru banking and two ATMs) on the first floor. The thirteenth floor also houses the Window Garden Café, a Sodexo-managed cafeteria. The Window Garden serves breakfast and lunch and is also open to the public.
- Indiana Michigan Power once had a bill-paying office on the first floor, directly across the hallway from the Chase branch. Because of the increasing ability to pay bills online and in stores, the office was eventually closed.
- Until their merger with Old National Bank, locally-based Tower Bank maintained a billboard directly across the street from One Summit Square, positioned so one could see it when driving to the Chase branch's drive-up tellers and ATM.
