C E N T E R R E V I E W 110 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • MAY 2015 first Kona Grill and the Cheesecake Fac- tory, Pies and Pints, Flip Side, Rusty Bucket and Brio Tuscan Grill. According to Steiner + Associates' Ex- ecutive Vice President of Retail Real Es- tate Anne Mastin, Liberty Center's tenant lineup will also include a who's who list of national fashion retailers. "We could not announce our list prior to publication, but by the time this article runs in the May Recon issue of Shopping Center Busi- ness, we will have released an impressive list of national retailers," said Mastin. "We will have the best specialty and fashion names in the business." Located at the intersection of Interstate 75 and SR 129, on the newly constructed $55 million Liberty Way Interchange, Liberty Center will directly serve Butler and Warren Counties and their 600,000 residents. If that isn't enough, the proj- ect is located in the heart of the Dayton/ Cincinnati Metroplex which encompasses more than 3.5 million residents — the larg- est metropolitan area in the state of Ohio. According to Mastin, Liberty Center will be a truly unique addition to the greater Cincinnati marketplace. "The region is hungry for a great retail and entertainment destination," said Mastin. "Liberty Center will answer that demand in a powerful way." While diners and shoppers will enjoy a wide range of options and experiences at Liberty Center, the project is perhaps most noteworthy for its eye-opening de- sign features and architectural highlights — many of which are focused on pro- moting and enhancing social activity and activation. Anything but traditional, the Liberty Center layout includes a 280,000-square- foot two-level enclosed structure capped by massive skylights anchoring the east end of the site and providing an integrat- ed connection to the adjacent Dillard's. Moving west, a sequence of what Steiner describes as "integrated topographical steps" accommodate a 36-foot elevation drop from one end of the project to the other. In the center of the project, several distinctive park features and a number of public spaces and facilities add an intrigu- ing dimension to Liberty's slate of offer- ings. The parks are individually designed Unique public spaces help to define the sense of place at Liberty Center. Many will be used for community events.
