Liberty Commons is a thriving "destination shopping area" for the Northland, located at the southeast corner of I-35 & 152 Highway. The 315,000 square foot redevelopment represents an $85 million investment, with an estimated 550 jobs aimed at high school and college students along with full-time management.
B & B Theatre opened in July 2018 in the Blue Jay Crossing development.
The theatre houses ScreenX, the largest screen in the world at four stories tall and seven stories wide. The screen, one of four in the United States, is the centerpiece of B & B's flagship theater. The theater also offers:
Screenplay - an MX4D auditorium.
The Lyric - an event type space that can be rented for private parties.
Johnnie's Jazz Bar and Grille - an on-site restaurant that features live music and trivia nights.
Heated, reclining leather seats in all theaters.
This $19.5 million project has been a great investment in the community.
The Liberty Triangle is a mixed use project located along I-35.
Major tenants include:
Dick's Sporting Goods
Ross Dress for Less
Liberty's downtown received a much needed update in 2016-2017 thanks to a voter approved Economic Development Sales Tax.
The City dedicated $5 million to public infrastructure improvements within the downtown area. Highlight of the project included reconstruction of the streets, sidewalks and utilities around the Liberty "square" area. Sidewalks are now a wider, more pedestrian friendly 14 feet in a number of sections. New landscaping and crosswalks define the intersections and even parking was upgraded.
As seen in the pictures, the reconstruction has become the backdrop to a new rotating sculpture program that brings in new 9-12 sculptures each year.
