Westfield’s Grand Junction Plaza received first-place honors at the 45th annual Monumental awards presented by the Indy Chamber. The six-acre downtown park was nominated in the Landscape Architecture category. The Monumental Awards represent the nine-county Indianapolis region’s highest honor in the built environment. According to the Indy Chamber, winners are selected based on the region’s most significant and broadest impact.
According to Westfield Mayor Andy Cook, “This honor represents the vision 15 years ago of the Grand Junction Task Group, dedicated volunteers who pursued the idea of a vibrant urban destination for downtown Westfield. Grand Junction Plaza has fulfilled that ambition and created a place for reflection and serenity. A gathering place for friends and families for generations to come.”
Grand Junction Plaza opened in late 2021 and hosts the Westfield Farmers Market, Westfield Welcome’s Movies and Music in the Plaza, and other significant community events throughout the year.
The city shares this honor with its partners on the project, including Wilhelm Construction, Land Collective, HWKN, and Ratio.
