Westfield City Council hears Midtown at Westfield introduction


The Westfield City Council heard an introduction of the Midtown at Westfield mixed-use development proposed for 138 acres east of Ind. 31 on both sides of 191st Street.

Steve Henke, president of Henke Development, presented on the project that, if approved, will contain six sub-districts with residential, office, hotel multi-family and single-family uses.

The land is owned by the Anthony family, which also owns Indiana Mills and Manufacturing, Inc.

“This property has been acquired over a number of years by the Anthony family and surrounds their world headquarters for IMMI,” Henke said. “We are honored they have selected us to develop this property for them. They want quality development, the highest possible quality development that can be attained in this area. They do plan to own a lot of buildings, built to suite.”

Henke said the development could offer leases, but the Anthonys’ primary interest is retaining control of the property. 

Henke said the development will feature restaurants and shopping.

“One of the real keys to the whole development of this area is most of the office buildings today, people like having places to go for restaurant and shops,” Henke said. “This is where we have really put a lot of time into planning this, and we have also talked to the Northpoint development, which indicated that’s what people are looking for – places to go to and shop. One of the most prominent office building developers in Indiana had a discussion with me two weeks ago, and he said office buildings standing alone are a thing of the past.”

Because the proposal was only an introduction, the council did not vote. A public hearing is scheduled for the July 15 Westfield Advisory Plan Commission meeting. For more, visit westfield.in.gov.
