Development planned for city


Follow Daily Journal:


A company that builds indoor sports complexes for events such as youth sports tournaments is planning a development in Greenwood.

GoodSports Enterprises Global will make a presentation to the Greenwood Redevelopment Commission today about a proposed development at the southeast corner of County Line Road and Interstate 65, according to a news release from the city.

That area is where outdoor sporting goods giant Cabela’s had planned a destination store years ago.

GoodSports, based in Sarasota, Fla., is building 25 villages around the country that provide athletes a place to eat, sleep and compete all in one place, according to the company’s website.

For example, the company announced in January a Missouri location for one of the villages planned to be built during the next four years.

That development includes a 130-room athlete-minded hotel with an adjacent 85,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fieldhouse, according to the company’s website.

The specific plan being considered for Greenwood has not been announced.

The site has water lines and a retention pond, but Cabela’s dropped plans for the store and sold the property. Greenwood also did work in the area, including spending $11 million to widen Graham Road.

County Line 101 Partners LLC, a group of local investors, bought the land in 2010 from Cabela’s. Last year, after struggling to sell the 100-acre property, the property was platted, or divided into blocks, which officials said would make the land easier to sell.
