The New Direction of Real Estate Development

America’s Sports Resort

America’s Sports Resort (ASR) plan is to build a large state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor facility that will offer a host of sports related and recreational activities and special events in southern New Jersey. This includes regional training camps and leagues for competitive tournament events in baseball, basketball, track & field and softball among other sport programs. These programs are projected to draw thousands of participants from as far as upstate New York to Maryland and out to Western Pennsylvania with strong national and international potential as well.

The proposed complex will be built in multiple phases from 2015 through 2017, creating hundreds of direct and indirect permanent jobs as each phase is completed, as well as 200-400 temporary construction jobs. Significant tax ratables are projected to be created for the city and region. It is estimated that the economic impact to the city, state and county will be in excess of $200M annually.

With the proposed location in Vineland, NJ, in the highly populated northeast (1/3 of the US population), it is anticipated that America’s Sports Resort will draw year round athletes for competitive sports events and training, their families, spectators, tourists and sponsors from all over the region, nation and world. The complex is ideally situated with access to Route 55 via Exit 26 at the west end of the site with the southern end bordering Route 55 and the city of Millville. This location is convenient to both Philadelphia and Atlantic City Airports for those traveling to the proposed complex. SORA Northeast Development LLC has been called upon to utilize their years of development and construction expertise to develop and oversee the project from inception to completion. America’s Sports Resort will be formed through strategic partnering and key personnel appointments from within all aspects of the sports world to manage and operate ASR upon completion.

America’s Sports Resort plans to construct a unique state of the art multi-sport venue that will attract a wide range of athletes. The large number of projected attendees to the complex will promote strong sponsorship opportunities, F&B (food and beverage) sales and retail sales in addition to the tournament and training revenues.

Structures and amenities include:

  • 12 – 60×90 Baseball Fields
  • 1 – 60×90 Baseball Championship Field
  • 8 – 50×70 Baseball Fields
  • 2 – Special Population Fields
  • 8 – Regulation Tennis Courts
  • Planned future expansion will include multiple fields to accommodate a Soccer/ Lacrosse/ Field Hockey Tournament and Training venue
  • Outdoor facilities, including children’s play parks, retail kiosks, pavilions, exercise stations and concession buildings will be located throughout the grounds and will be developed over all phases of construction.
  • A multi-use indoor arena with the ability to accommodate 8 basketball courts for Training and Tournaments with the capability to be reconfigured for other events such as cheerleading competitions, gymnastics, MMA, roller hockey and box lacrosse, among others, with flexible seating according to the event(s). The ASR Arena also has the potential to serve as an exhibition space and will house corporate offices, broadcasting facilities, medical and sports rehabilitation services, classroom space, restaurants, concessions, retail space and a food service facility. With seating for up to 10,000 along with private box seats, this venue has remarkable marketing and sponsorship potential.
  • On site housing for over 3000 athletes will be located on site to support large regional tournaments. The ASR Village will include dining facilities, laundry facilities, a game room, recreation areas and team meeting rooms.
  • In addition to the Sports Complex, plans include a 4-star hotel with conference facilities, restaurants, a 70,000 square foot indoor water park and a 7 acre outdoor water park to support the participating athletes and their families, coaches and friends. The ASR Resort Hotel & Water Park will provide lodging, meals and entertainment for ASR tournament attendees as well as the general public and the conference center will be available for business conferences, trade shows and local community events.
