The City of Westfield: Small Town Charm, Big City Opportunity

It may be that today the word “suburb” brings about visions of cookie cutter homes, strip malls, and a neighborhood full of Stepford-wife types. Often there is a thirst for the simplicity of having what’s needed nearby, with the charm and personality of a small town. Enter, the city of Westfield, Indiana.
“We are thrilled to attract families to Westfield,” stated Mayor Andy Cook. “The amenities, schools and quality of life in Westfield are clearly what families are looking for when deciding where to put down roots.” Westfield, named WalletHub’s Best Small City of 2016 and 2017’s 3rd Best City to Raise a Family in Indiana, is becoming a favored place to call home for folks from far and wide. “Families continue to come to Westfield not just from other places in Indiana, but from all over the country,” Mayor Andy Cook said.
Several commuters choose Westfield because of its central location. With highway access it’s a timely trip to Carmel, and just about anywhere else one would want to go. It’s the perfect choice for those looking for a north side address, but travel regularly.
Hoping for a job in Westfield? “Westfield, IN is the best-field when it comes to jobs; it came in 3rd for the best cities for jobs in Indiana. A suburb of Indianapolis, Westfield boasts a low unemployment rate (5th overall) and strong future job growth (8th),” as concluded in a study by Zippia.
Picture a quiet morning walk to the local Farmer’s Market. How about a family night out in the park watching a movie on the big screen? Need a unique place to eat? There are so many local restaurants a stone’s throw away! With local boutiques, parks, walking trails like the Midland Trail, breweries, and city events, staying busy is never a problem.
At the center of it all is downtown Westfield and Union Street. Just off the highway in the heart of Westfield, you’ll find numerous locally owned shops & restaurants. Here you can find Union Street Flats and Ashley Place Apartments, located in downtown Westfield and fostering the same community and neighborly feeling you sense from the City of Westfield.
Near both J.C. Hart Company Communities is Union Street Flowers. “I love being a part of the Westfield community. it’s nice to have encouragement from other business owners. They want everybody else to do well. My mom and I have lived in Westfield our whole lives. There is a lot of growth happening and a lot of cool businesses popping up. There are a lot of great events too, which are bringing people into Westfield,” stated Kristen Weiss, Manager of Union Street Flowers.
Often partnering with local businesses, Union Street Flats is appreciative to be a part of the community, and furthermore, is excited to bring that community to Residents through Resident events. By partnering with Pat-A-Cakes Bakery, Grand Junction Brewery, Bash Boutique, and Union Street Flowers, Union Street Flats is able to introduce Residents to the heart of Westfield whether they were born and raised in Indiana or here from out of state and making Indiana home sweet home.
