After being selected to lease and manage the 236,229-square-foot Center Point Business Park in Tampa, Fla., JLL has been tapped by the owners of Liberty Center to handle retail leasing and property management services for the mixed-use asset in Liberty Township, Ohio. 

Located at 7100 Foundry Row, the property offers more than 1.3 million square feet of space. This includes 77,000 square feet of office, a 130-key AC Hotel by Marriott and 240 residential units. Liberty Center is home to nearly 100 shopping, entertainment and dining options, some that are unique to the Ohio area. Attractions include a 16-screen Cinebistro movie theater, an iFly Indoor Skydiving set to open in 2019, Funny Bone Comedy Club Restaurant and Cincinnati Children’s Discovery Center. The property will also be home to the MidPointe Library System’s full-service branch that will be on the second floor of Liberty Center’s enclosed mall space called The Foundry. Some featured restaurants include Brio Tuscan Grill, Cheesecake Factory, Kona Grill, Cantina Laredo, Cooper’s Hawk and more. 

JLL’s Regional Director Janine Christian will oversee the retail property management for the asset, while Vice Presidents Kevin Thobe, Giorgio Karras and Chad Macy will oversee the retail leasing.

“The Liberty Center is a great addition to the JLL management portfolio—it’s a prime example of the way retail is migrating to a live/work/play hub that offers the local community a center for gathering and entertainment,” Christian told Commercial Property Executive. “We expect entertainment and destination experiences like Cincinnati Children’s Discovery Center and the MidPointe Library at the Foundry, opening in 2019, to continue to bring in shoppers and make the center a valuable part of the local community.”
