The permits have been submitted and approved and now shovels are turning ground. The Westfield Economic Development Dept. provided the top six projects to begin in 2014:
Chatham Hills: 750-acre mixed-use golf course development featuring a Pete Dye-designed 18-hole championship course located at the southwest corner of Ind. 38 and U.S 31 and abutting the Monon Trail. The development has 1,500 homes planned and home prices are expected to range from $275,000 to more than $1 million, with most falling between $400,000 and $800,000. When completely built out, developer Steve Henke expects its assessed value to exceed $500 million.
Springmill Pointe: A 20-acre commercial center located in the Maple Knoll development on the southwest corner of Ind. 32 and Austrian Pine Way that includes several out lots and a proposed 19,100-square-foot Tractor Supply that would be relocating from their existing Westfield location.
Harmony: A 277-acre mixed-use development located on the west side of Ditch Road between 146th and 156th streets that includes up to 710 single-family homes; 270 multi-family dwellings, and 170,000 square feet of commercial space. The amenity- and club-centric neighborhood with seven house styles ranging in size from 1,400 to 3,600 square feet has starting prices from $225,000 to $425,000. Amenities will include water features, walking trails, a multi-purpose clubhouse, outdoor pool, play structure, putting green, and basketball, tennis and sand volleyball courts. Construction is scheduled to begin in March.
Bridgewater Center at 146th Street: A 10-acre commercial center located in the Bridgewater development on the northeast corner of 146th Street and Carey Road that includes several outlots and a new 21st Amendment store that will be under construction in the spring.
North Walk: A proposed 3-acre residential subdivision on Union Street, approximately a quarter-mile north of Hoover Street, which would include up to 16 single-family detached homes. This project has not yet been approved and was initially introduced to the Westfield City Council on Dec. 9. Homes are estimated to sell at $195,000 to $225,000 each. Anticipated construction is to start in the spring.
Casey Acres: An 18.4-acre apartment community that includes 252 units and is located within the Springmill Trails development, specifically on Casey Road just north of Ind. 32. This is the first multiple-family development plan for Springmill Trails.
