New Free 'Express Spaces' for Parking 15 Minutes in Westfield

New Free 'Express Spaces' for Parking 15 Minutes in Westfield

Enforcement now only 10am-6pm, Monday-Saturday

The Westfield Town Council approved an increase in the number of hours of free parking downtown and the creation of free 'express spaces' for people parking for 15 minutes or less at the June 20 town council meeting.

Both changes are the result of recommendations by the Mayor's Downtown Task Force and discussions among the Public Safety, Transportation & Parking Committees. Ordinance 2084 changes the hours of paid parking downtown for shoppers and visitors from the current times of 9am to 7pm to 10am to 6pm, effective immediately. Signs and stickers in the downtown lots are being changed. The ordinance will also allow the Westfield Police Department to designate certain parking spaces as 15-minute 'express spaces' for those picking up takeout orders from Downtown restaurants or running quick errands. Read more...

New Construction Brings Luxury Rental Apartments to Downtown Westfield

New Construction Brings Luxury Rental Apartments to Downtown Westfield

There are three new and exciting building projects currently under construction in Downtown Westfield that promise to bring new rental options and foot traffic to our downtown commercial district. All of these buildings are transit friendly, conveniently located within easy walking distance to the train and bus stations, and offer great appeal for a wide variety of renters -- including young professionals, empty nesters, and single parents who want to remain in the area. In addition, all three properties represent significant investments in our future, are modern and architecturally appealing, and blend into the downtown character. They represent improvements to currently underutilized properties located at highly visible locations within our downtown area. They will provide easy access to the goods, services and entertainment that Downtown Westfield provides as well as parking. 

333 Central - Pictured above, a 70-unit, four-story luxury rental building will be opening soon at Central and South Avenues. With easy access to Westfield's train station, this transit-oriented multi-family structure is sure to attract professionals and local empty-nesters looking to downsize. With a completion date set for spring 2017, this 126,340 square foot property will feature 70 luxury one and two-bedroom rental apartments with enclosed parking, a lounge with a wet bar, a gym, yoga room, and two rooftop lounges. Apartments will have 9-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances. Some apartments will also have a den and/or a private terrace. The building is pet friendly.

Rumors on Social Media Can Be Damaging to Our Downtown

Rumors on Social Media Can Be Damaging to Our Downtown

Rumors can be a terribly damaging form of communication. Rumors spread on social media are no exception, and only serve to amplify the negative effects on people and businesses. 

Recently our office has received an increased level of questions about store closings based on rumors on social media. While we can in some cases confirm news about stores not renewing their leases or planning to close, the majority of rumors we hear and read are false! Rumors about some of our downtown chain stores and restaurants closing are most often not true and we are baffled by who would start such rumors and why. The businesses affected are themselves confused about where the rumors started and are forced into damage control mode to convince customers they are doing fine.
