Westfield City Council hears new $6 million Grand Park training facility


By Noah Alatza

The Grand Park Events Center Planned Unit Development was introduced to city council Nov. 13. The new 68,000-square-foot facility will be built west of the current Grand Park Events Center, 19000, Grand Park Blvd.

The facility previously was pinned for a new hotel, but city officials chose a different option. The city currently owns the land, however finalized decisions are still being made.

Jesse Pohlman, of Onpointe Land Matters requested a change in the zoning. ProX Athletic Development at Grand Park will house rehabilitation and development services for athletes.

Council member Cindy Spoljaric said she would like to see restrictions on some special exception uses.

“There’s probably a host of uses in the GP district that were unlikely to happen,” she said. “What is the city’s contribution to this project?”

The city responded by saying they will own the ground and ProX will lease it from them.

Beginning construction is expected in the spring with an opening by fall 2018. No public funding is necessary for the project.
