Two dozen additional tenants were announced this week for the $750 million mixed-use development Liberty Center opening next month along Interstate 75 in this northern Cincinnati suburb.

They include Mexican restaurant Cantina Laredo, wine club and upscale restaurant Coopers Hawk and DAVIDsTea, a Canadian retailer selling more than 150 types of teas, according to Columbus-based Steiner and Associates and Bucksbaum Retail Properties of Chicago Wednesday.

“We are very pleased to be announcing this latest group of retailers,” said Steiner and Associates Executive Vice President of Retail Real Estate Anne Mastin in a prepared statement. “These fine merchants and restaurateurs will be joining the other 68 retailers we announced in July and will bring additional diversity and energy to our already outstanding line-up.”

Steiner and Bucksbaum plan to make more announcements in the weeks ahead, she added.

About 60 tenants will be ready for shoppers when the center opens Oct. 22.

The other new tenants include: Adore, Brookstone, Cellaris, Dakota Watch, Dead Sea Salt Skin Products, Delhi Christmas Store, Eddie Bauer, Hot Topic, Infinity Scarves, Journeys Kidz, Popcorn Pizzazz, Re: Bar, Rookwood Pottery, Ruby's Chocolates, Santa's Pen, Silver Mountain Jewelry, Smari Designs, Smart Massager, Sunglass Hut, T-Mobile and Torrid.

In July, dozens of other tenants were announced such as American Eagle, Bath & Body Works, Build-A-Bear, Cheesecake Factory, Five Guys Burgers, GAP, H&M, Graeters Ice Cream, Kona Grill and Old Navy.

Liberty Center’s 200,000-square-foot Dillard’s will be the state of Ohio’s first ground-up store, according to the statement.

Dick’s Sporting Goods new 80,000-square-foot concept will be the first of its kind in the northern Cincinnati market, and the AC Hotel by Marriott is another state first.

The 64-acre, 1.2-million-square-foot Liberty Center is located on the northwest corner of the Liberty Way interchange at I-75 and Ohio 129.

The project includes more than 800,000-square-feet of retail, restaurants and entertainment, 75,000-square-feet of office, 240 luxury apartments and the 130-key hotel.

“The anticipation of the Liberty Center grand opening in the region has been unlike anything we have ever experienced,” Mastin said in the statement.  “We knew that this market was hungry for a vibrant, mixed-use environment, but we could not have predicted the level of enthusiasm this community has for our vision and our retail mix.”
