The Liberty Township Zoning Commission voted 3-2 to recommend approval of the proposed $133 million, 88 acre mixed use development known as Freedom Pointe. The project includes a new Costco store, and a luxury apartment/townhome development which will be built and run by the award-winning Hills Properties. There will be three entrances to the property, including a main street called Veterans Boulevard, which will connect to OH-129, I-75, and Cox Road via the new roundabout currently under construction. Dan Wheeler, representing Hen-Jur, LLC, the longtime owners of the property on the northeast corner of Liberty Way and Cox Road, says Costco will bring many economic benefits to the township.
Steve Cross, representing Costco, says Liberty Township is a good location for the wholesaler.
Michael Copfer with Hills Properties says the apartment/townhome development will be called
Relay 129, and it will have a similar design to the Residences at Clocktower, and the award-winning Savoy at the Streets of West Chester.
Some residents who live in the nearby Four Bridges neighborhood spoke out against the development. Jeff Harrington says safety is his main concern.
Chris Jones says he is concerned about the noise that Costco's tire and auto center would generate
The proposal now goes to the township trustees, who are expected to take up the issue at their July 6th meeting.
