A hotel and sports complex planned for Greenwood could be the start of commercial development at an intersection that has stalled for years.

GoodSports Enterprises Global of Sarasota, Fla., has proposed building a $22 million hotel and field house with indoor basketball and volleyball courts at the southeast corner of County Line Road and Interstate 65, with the facilities opening in 2015.

The 85,000-square-foot field house could be used for sporting events, such as volleyball tournaments on weekends and basketball camps during the week. A 124-room, five-story hotel is geared toward athletes and their families. GoodSports plans to build 25 similar complexes across the country in the next four years due to demand for lodging and sports facilities for traveling sports teams and has made similar proposals in Ohio, Missouri and Kansas.
