Nearly three dozen deals have been signed in the first two weeks of leasing at the Liberty Harbor East, officials said late last week.

The fast start at the $170 million development at 711 S. Central Ave. just off the waterfront across from Harbor Point was unexpected, yet welcomed, the developers say. The project is preparing to open in early July — and so far 34 apartments have been leased.

“We had 16 leases signed in the first weekend,” said Tess Guinn, a vice president with Bozzuto Development Co., part owner of the project with Harbor East Management Group.

The project will hold 285 apartments and 33 condominiums for sale.

The design of the 22-story Liberty incorporates various levels. Amenities include an infinity pool with harbor views, a gym and fitness center, social space and a 50,000-square-foot Whole Foods market that will open as the anchor tenant at ground level by the end of the year.

The first apartment tenants will move into units on the 9th level, Guinn said. Residents of the penthouse, or the “horizon levels” of floors 20-22, will deliver at the end of the summer.
