Wilmer Economic Development
EMLI at Liberty Crossing, the first phase of a 100-acre, master-planned development in Wilmer, will officially get underway on Tuesday, March 20.
EMLI is the residential component of Liberty Crossing that will include 240 residential units across 10 buildings as well as a business center, Internet cafe, swimming pool, pet park, farm-to-table garden, on-site non-profit, playground, and fitness center.
"With Wilmer continuing to add hundreds of new jobs, we have needed additional housing for Wilmer’s workforce," said David Miracle, Executive Director of Wilmer Economic Development. "Liberty Crossing, as it develops, will also provide retail and healthcare amenities that will benefit the entire community."
Liberty Crossing is one of several developments included in the Wilmer Southeast Infrastructure Project at Interstate Highway 45 between Mars Road and Belt Line Road.
The Project will provide sanitary sewer, water and road infrastructure to support residential, commercial, and retail development for the entire area.
Funding for the Project includes Liberty Crossing; EMLI; the Dallas Independent School District planned elementary and middle school campus; the Autumn Breeze Apartments; and, the City of Wilmer and its two economic development sales tax corporations.
A ground-breaking ceremony for EMLI will be held March 20, 2018 at the site at 5:30 PM, presided over by the Mayor of Wilmer, Casey Burgess.
