The facility designed by HOK is unique in that it will mark the first time mixed use development is married with a Spring Training facility.

The ballpark will be the centerpiece of Ballpark Village at Wood Corporate Campus, a $1 billion, 240-acre mixed-use development of office, retail, housing and hospitality. The ballpark’s ground-level concourse is being planned to integrate with the surrounding restaurants, offices and a hotel/conference center.

Does look cool. I may chip in with my siblings and buy for my parents a townhouse there for snowbird usage. My dad would enjoy harassing all the Indians fans who'd be neighbors.

This is pretty much the death of baseball in Winter Haven.

They lost the Red Sox to Ft Myers in 1992 and only got the Indians because of Hurricane Andrew destroying the Indians new park in Homestead.

Florida losing teams like crazy.
