We couldn’t be more excited to start up Bluewater in Northfield! With great commercial real estate popping up around town, we wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted to start-up or even move your existing business here, too. But, why should you?
Well, we think The Wall Street Journal said it best: “…the walkable town features a well-preserved 19(th) century classic American downtown — centered on Division Street –home to cool cafes and restaurants, clothing and home-decorating stores, swanky antique and thrift shops, art galleries, a museum and delicious bakeries.”
If that’s not enough to get you to make the move, here are some more reasons why Northfield is a prime spot for relocating or starting up your business:
- Northfield has a highly educated workforce, almost twice the national average! With two colleges in town, St. Olaf and Carleton, and Northfield’s excellent public school system, 46% of residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher.
- With Northfield’s close proximity to the cities, business’s can still easily commute to the metropolitan area, but don’t necessarily have to deal with the pitfalls of being in an urban setting.
- Northfield’s nightlife offers great shopping and dinning options, even affordable happy-hour drink specials for a quick afterwork drink.
- Northfield’s pro-green practices support the local farmer’s market, bike trails, natural lands, and the river walk. Even with more and more healthy restaurants opening around town, your employees will have a chance to explore Northfield’s organic options during their lunch breaks.
