It’s almost hard to remember what Liberty Township, Ohio was like before Liberty Center opened in the fall of 2015. Located between Cincinnati and Dayton, the booming, 100-acre mixed-use development has integrated so seamlessly into the neighborhood that it feels like it’s been here forever.
But alas, that’s not quite the case. Liberty Center opened in Liberty Township just over a year and a half ago. The center houses retail shops, restaurants, big box stores, apartments and a hotel. My favorite stores include the Art of Shaving, a luxurious line of men’s shaving products that include pre-shave oils like sandalwood, lemon and lavender. With stubble this soft, the Mrs. can never complain!
When it comes to restaurants, there’s no shortage to choose from at Liberty Center. Tame your hunger pains with Auntie Anne’s Pretzels or sit down for a bite at Kona Grill. Brio Tuscan Grill, Brazilian steakhouse Rodizio Grill and Columbus-staple Northstar Café have also become fan favorites. There are at least a dozen other places to choose from too, no matter whether you’re looking for fast casual or fine dining.
For a particularly fun night out in Liberty Township, be sure to check out the Funny Bone Comedy Club & Restaurant. The Funny Bone hosts nationally recognized acts as well as local talent from right here in Liberty Township. Depending on the night you’ll be able to catch a comedian or a live jazz show – and if you’re lucky, maybe a combo of both.
Don’t feel like driving home after a big night out? No problem. Liberty Center also features an AC Hotel by Marriott. “AC” – which stands for Autograph Collection – is one of Marriott’s new hotel concepts where each hotel is unique to its specific location. Pretty cool, right?
Liberty Center also has a number of traditional residential buildings and office employers located on site, so it truly gives the development a buzz no matter what time of the day.
But one of the things I really like about Liberty Center is that it’s so different from the “malls” of yesteryear. The complex is also hosting events, festivals and other programs that attract people who don’t want to spend a dime. This helps cultivate a real sense of community in a place that could have easily felt like just another drab mall. Yet Liberty Center is different. It has yoga classes, 5k runs, children’s events, fireworks and outdoor concerts that lure people of all ages. Best yet, most of these events are offered to Liberty Township residents and others for FREE!
Steiner + Associates, the master developer of Liberty Center, has gone to great lengths to imagine what Liberty Township residents will want in a real estate development that will last for decades to come. No detail has been overlooked, no amenity undiscovered. Whether you’re passionate about urban gardening or care about public art, there’s something nontraditional you’ll fall in love with at Liberty Center.
Already, the local community is feeling the economic benefit of Liberty Center. It is estimated that the project will have an annual impact of $459 million, according to a University of Cincinnati study. And it’s proving a real boon for Liberty Township, OH homeowners as values around the project continue to rise. At least some of that demand could be attributed to the thousands of jobs that have been created by Liberty Center since all of those new employees need somewhere to live!
If you live in Liberty Township, Ohio – you already know how great it is here. For longtime homeowners, Liberty Center is just another amenity to an already wonderful community. For newcomers, Liberty Mutual proves to be the perfect example of the 21st century “lifestyle center” that both Millennials and Baby Boomers want to be close to (if not live in). This makes the surrounding areas attractive to home buyers who would otherwise be commuting in from farther away. Life near Liberty Center puts the best life-work-play lifestyle right at your fingertips.
