C E N T E R R E V I E W 112 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • MAY 2015 Liberty Center will feature a diverse array of retail, dining and entertainment options alongside significant office, residential and hospitality components. and programmed to provide a memorable experience. While the "Living Room" is located inside the enclosed mall space, the two larger outdoor parks include "The Green," which comes complete with pop fountains and other interactive features, and a grander and very different park space at the west end of the site. This social square has more active and dynamic energy, with public sculpture, a central fountain, and a lawn gently open- ing onto an outdoor bandshell. Between the two main parks is arguably Liberty's most unique and distinctive fea- ture: a long single-story structure with an extraordinary green roof space known as "The Acropolis." Roof access is provided via a set of grand stairs at either end of the structure. Liberty Center visitors who ascend to the roof will find not only a rooftop garden, but also an outdoor "con- servatory/display space" and a dedicated community space that can be reserved for parties, private gatherings and other special events. "The challenge," says Steiner, "is to cre- ate an environment that gives residents, visitors and shoppers the opportunity to explore, to create their own narrative, and to want to stay longer and do more." Starting on October 8, it appears that Cincinnati-area residents who visit Liberty Center will be able to do just that.
