Liberty’s sizable growth spurt appears likely to continue following a recent rezoning approved by the city council for Northpoint Development’s multi-use development on the city’s north side, near I-35 and Highway 69.
Northpoint is also the developer of the $450-million Liberty Commerce Center near Withers Road and South Liberty Parkway. The company recently won zoning approval for 50 acres that would include nine car dealerships, each comprised of 20,000 to 25,000 square feet and two stories in height. All of that is just south of another 360 acres, also owned by Northpoint and planned for development as the North Liberty Logistics Park.
To date, two approximately 400,000 square foot speculative buildings have been proposed for North Liberty Logistics Park. Much like Liberty Commerce Center to the south, this project could be large, with seven industrial buildings totaling over 3.5 million square feet. By comparison, Liberty Commerce Center contains eight buildings totaling 3.6 million square feet on 337 acres.
This is not Liberty’s only active industrial development. The community already boasts the 62-acre Liberty Logistics Center, which was developed by Lane4 Property Group and the 152-acre Liberty Heartland Logistics Center, developed by The Opus Group.
