Liberty Center's rooftop garden could set the Butler County retail center apart

Design influenced by Stonehenge, Spanish Steps

Most retail outlets have air-handling equipment and tar on the roof. Liberty Center has a “wonderful little gem of discovery.”

That’s how Dwayne Furukawa, senior development executive at Steiner + Associates, describes the nearly two-acre rooftop garden that will be built atop retail spaces on the $300 million Butler County project.

“The idea behind our roof garden here is to have something a little more passive that the customer will just happen upon and it’ll be like a wonderful little gem of discovery,” said Furukawa, in an exclusive interview with WCPO at the International Council of Shopping Centers convention in Las Vegas.
