Liberty Square; Kensington's Piazza


Old Kensington will soon get a new mega piazza style development on former industrial zoned land along Germantown Ave. and American Street called "Liberty Square".  Blackstone Development will construct a six-story-high, 277,000 square-foot mixed use development with 247 apartments, commercial and live-work space.  the project will occupy the lot bounded by Thompson Street, Stiles Street, American Street and Germantown Avenue.


The project will also contain a 161-space underground parking garage with bike storage.  there will be street level retail along Germantown Ave, a restaurant and cafe on Stiles Street, live-work spaces along American Street and street level residential along Thompson Street.  the project will also feature an interior plaza with a fountain and dog park, with access to the plaza from the retail spaces along Germantown Avenue.  No worries to Kensington resident, this development in planning does not compare to the Piazza at Schmidt's down the road.  It is much smaller with more of a neighborhood scale, and less amenities.



Liberty Square will be built in three phases over the course of two and a half years with ground breaking some time in the late fall on the parking garage and the Germantown Ave building.

  3. Bring it on. This is great. More bodies in the apartments & sidewalks = more safety and security in the neighborhood. That site is grim now.
