The Kingsland City Council recently approved an agreement that clears the way for Epic Resorts Group, LLC to develop EPIC Adventures Resort Kingsland, a $350 million regional entertainment tourism complex on 495 acres of vacant land along Interstate-95 off Exit 3 in Kingsland. “The development agreement outlines the roles and responsibilities of both the city and the development team,” explained Kingsland City Manager Lee Spell. Spell added that city funds will not be used in the project.
The development is described as a comprehensive lifestyle resort with six individually-themed “districts” boasting an array of entertainment, leisure, lodging, retail and dining options that cater to all members of the family. Attractions could include a water park, miniature golf, outdoor amphitheater and bowling lanes.
The project is slated to create about 2,350 jobs within Camden County. EPIC Resorts has committed to filling the jobs within the regional labor market as a priority and will partner with education communities throughout the region to focus on workforce development training.
Construction is reportedly set to begin sometime in spring, 2015.
“We are extremely excited about this project,” Spell said. “We are optimistically looking forward to seeing the construction begin. We are right on Interstate 95, about 20 minutes north of Jacksonville, Fla. And we host tens of thousands of travelers daily. We are looking forward to adding this complex to our inventory of local destinations.”
