The latest unveiling of a new development in the booming border area of West Chester and Liberty Twps. means new housing options close to the premier attractions offered by the Liberty Center and others nearby.

Sitting on the West Chester side of Liberty Way, which is the dividing roadway between the two townships, the recently opened Towns of Wetherington — a 70-unit luxury townhome community — is across the street from Liberty Center.

Officials from the builder — Fischer Homes — were joined by local political and community leaders earlier this month at a ribbon cutting also attended by local chamber of commerce officials.

“The Towns of Wetherington townhomes are in a prime spot offering walkability to shopping, dining and entertainment at Liberty Center, one of the most popular lifestyle centers in the region,” said Brian Johnson, Cincinnati division market president for Fischer Homes.

“Not only is this community an amazing location for our future homeowners, but it is sure to provide economic growth for the area and visitors to Liberty Center,” said Johnson.

Fischer officials said the townhomes, which average about 3,000 square feet with prices starting at $500,000, “offers new luxury townhome designs with three levels of living, gracious outdoor spaces and ample personalization options along with easy access to premier shopping, dining, entertainment and fitness options.”

“Fischer Homes is excited to show the public all that this area has to offer, and we’d like to invite everyone to come out to see for themselves the attractive combination of luxury living and convenience that Towns of Wetherington has to offer,” Johnson said at the opening ceremony.

The new residential community is the latest in a series of fast-track business and housing developments along the two townships’ border.

Late 2022 saw the opening of Butler County’s only Costco store — located about a half-mile east on Liberty Way from the Towns of Wetherington — and the new store is the anchor business for the $139 million, mixed-use Freedom Pointe project now under construction.

All the developments are close to the Liberty Way and Interstate 75 interchange, a key portion of the I-75 growth corridor running from the northern Greater Cincinnati area to southern portions of Greater Dayton.

Joe Hinson, president and CEO of the West Chester and Liberty Chamber Alliance, said the new residential community by Fischer Homes is a key addition to the rapidly expanding local economy, providing pedestrian access to many close-by options.

“The Towns of Wetherington offers their residence easy access to an array of shopping, dining and recreation,” said Hinson.

“And walkability is an amenity that is favored by both young professionals and baby boomers alike, and Liberty Way bordering our vibrant communities of West Chester and Liberty Townships, offers residences that experience. Being close to your customer is a competitive advantage and helps support our local businesses.”
