According to Anne Poynter, momentum is brewing in downtown Westfield right now. "I believe that the renovations that the city has completed combined with the Grand Junction plans, have really piqued the interest for businesses. This is the beginning of something big for the community of Westfield, says Poynter.

Poynter, partnering w/Curt Whitesell of WKRP Indy, created a new site for business owners looking for space in the downtown. Grand Junction Properties goal is to inventory downtown space and provide a "one stop shop website for those looking to lease/buy space. site allows the greater community to see what is currently available as well as the City's plans for redevelopment.

"There's huge potential in this downtown, says Whitesell. "The location of our downtown on Highway 32 and in close proximity to Highway 31 provides enormous marketing potential for any business. This visibility partnered with great new access trails and our low rent/sale prices is the reason we're getting bombarded with inquiries.

Poynter says, "This website & signage for availability in the downtown has created a buzz. It's the first time anyone has tried to collectively market downtown Westfield as a great place to bring business. This is prime real estate on the verge of explosive growth for very reasonable rates.

Renovations to Westfield's downtown included the reconstruction of Old Friends Cemetery Park, the construction of the Midland Trail and trailhead, the construction of the Grand Junction trail, the extension of the Natalie Wheeler Trail and the streetscaping of S. Union Street. Currently, the city is in the process for acquiring land to eventually construct the Grand Junction plaza.
