Let’s make our neighborhoods about community and connection, not about isolation and consumerism.

Nathan Cadieux, Vice President, The Corky McMillin Companies

In 2016, Liberty Station is set to unveil a brand new look, particularly in its north end Arts District, with more pedestrian-friendly access and new boutiques and restaurants. The makeover will define Liberty Station as its own neighborhood and redefine what it means to be a community. “Our communities and shopping centers are very car-focused and consumerist. And technology means we’re hyperconnected but disconnected personally,” Cadieux says. “We’re creating a space that you can experience by foot, which is more intimate than driving around at 65 miles per hour from one place to the next. We’re pushing against societal laziness.” While Buona Forchetta, Liberty Public Market, and luxury cinema venue The Lot are set to open in the first quarter, the next phase of development will focus on utilizing even more outdoor space. That means less screen time, more sunshine.
