Construction Begins On 450K SF Springfield Sports Complex
Partners Kendrick Ashton and Craig Dixon are teaming up with private equity firm Cain International to build The St. James, a 450K SF sports complex on a 20-acre campus in Springfield.
The 24/7 sports complex is expected to open in September 2018 and began pre-sales Thursday. It has a wide range of sports venues, including a turf field with 65-foot roof clearances, two ice rinks, four basketball courts, a 50-meter pool, six batting cages, a squash and golf center, a gymnastics center and a climbing wall. All fields, courts, rinks and the pool meet the regulations for the highest level of their respective sports.
The St. James also includes a 50K SF health club with cardio and strength training equipment, a 20K SF entertainment center with obstacle courses, zip lines and climbing walls and a 6K SF indoor water park. Additionally, it will include a spa with massage rooms and a sports medicine center with rehabilitation services.
The complex will also have retail offerings, including a restaurant and café and a store with sneakers, apparel, technology and equipment.
