ATLANTA -- A development group is proposing a sports complex next to Midtown's Atlantic Station.

Odyssey Sports Atlanta would develop the "sportsplex" on land between 450 and 464 Bishop Street. The industrial site is next to the 138-acre Atlantic Station mixed-use development at the Connector and 17th Street.

The new recreational facility would include an Olympic-sized pool; 10 basketball courts; 11 tennis courts; two lacrosse and soccer fields; and a hockey rink.

The project, called Odyssey Sportsplex, will be geared to training elite athletes, said Harold Buckley, an attorney representing the development group.

"These will be blue-chippers that are looking to play professionally," Buckley said.
