Construction of the garden apartments and two-story townhouses is expected to launch all at once on the project in early spring 2021 and wrap up within a two-year timeline.
The rentals would have between 551 square feet for the smallest garden apartment and 1,319 square feet for a two-bedroom townhouse.
The complex includes a clubhouse with fitness center, pool, and sidewalks. Interior amenities include granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, pendant lighting, and tile backsplash.
Columbus-based Steiner + Associates, Liberty Center’s developer, originally approached CASTO since they liked some of its projects in Columbus and felt there were similarities between this site and Tuller Flats, a project CASTO developed in the Bridge Street District in Dublin, according to CASTO Communities President Brent Sobczak.
What Liberty Center really needs is “density and people,” Sobczak said.
“We’re creating an urban, walkable project,” he said. “It’s a great transition to Liberty Center.”

CASTO, which owns and manages over 4,000 units in 13 apartment communities throughout Ohio, is now evaluation its next steps, Sobczak said in an email Thursday.
“Given that there are several moving parts in any development, we will have more details about the project within the next 30 days,” he said.
The product CASTO designed on its Tuller Flats project would provide the same symbiotic relationship with Liberty Center as it did in Dublin,” Steiner + Associates CEO Yaromir Steiner wrote in March 13 letter to township trustees.
“CASTO was very thoughtful in creating this product so that it speaks to both the millenial and ‘empty nester’ markets,” Steiner said.
The firm will deliver a product of high-quality design and materials, well positioned to meet the growing demand for alternate housing options for the community, he said.
