Bookings at the massive Spooky Nook Sports Complex , currently under construction in Butler County, are already filling up. 

Every weekend from April to August is booked, according to Sam Beiler, founder and owner of Spooky Nook Sports. He said 8,000 to 10,000 people are expected per day every weekend for a variety of tournaments including basketball, volleyball and wrestling.

"Our bookings are solid," Beiler told Hamilton City Council during a presentation on Wednesday. "We're really pleased with the interest. That interest has been strong now for months." 

What is the Spooky Nook Sports Complex?

The city of Hamilton is partnering with Spooky Nook Sports, the largest indoor sports complex in the country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to redevelop the former Champion Paper Mill property , a 40-plus acre brownfield site on the city's riverfront.

The 1.2 million-square-foot project  is comprised of an athletics complex as well as a hotel and convention center. 

Once completed, Spooky Nook Sports at Champion Mill will be the second largest convention center space in the Tristate area and the largest indoor sports complex in North America.

Construction continues on Hamilton sports complex after weather setbacks

Construction of the athletics complex faced some setbacks due to a weather-related steel collapse at building 500, a large indoor turf field, in March, Beiler said. The steel has been detached and will likely be removed from the site by the end of next week, though there are no estimates regarding the timing of a rebuild.

"We're very happy to see that getting cleaned up and taken off the site so we can get a fresh start there again," he said, adding progress has started picking up in the last month to six weeks. 

A combined 200 workers were at the site on Wednesday, of which 40 were drywall hangers and finishers working on the hotel, Beiler estimated. 

Spook Nook Sports Complex adds new tenant

He also announced the addition of another tenant: the Ohio Orthopedic Associates of Southwest Ohio. According to a news release, the practice will occupy 21,287 square feet of the athletics complex. 

"We are thrilled to build this relationship with Spooky Nook and look forward to extending world-class sports medicine to the region, as a long-term partnership in health & wellness for The Nook’s patrons and our patients," David Mohler, the practice's CEO, said in a statement.

'It's gonna be just and incredible 'wow''

Beiler also showed council a minute-and-a-half-long video rendering of the hotel and conference center's interior, which features 233 hotel rooms and 16 conference rooms, with the largest ballroom stretching out to approximately 8,000 square feet. There will also be available 60,000 square feet of tenant/lease space. 

"When out citizens and our visitors go inside that building it's gonna be just and incredible 'wow,'" Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller said after watching the video.

Multiple people injured after mass incident at Spooky Nook Sports Complex

spooky nook complex map

Multiple people were injured after a fight at Spooky Nook Sports Complex in Lancaster County prompted a mass exodus of the building on Sunday afternoon. 

Diane E. Garber, Emergency Services Coordinator for East Hempfield Township, confirmed that less than a dozen people were injured from being trampled after multiple people tried to leave the building in a "chaotic manner."

East Hempfield Police responded to a call at 2:22 p.m. for reported gunshots at a basketball tournament inside the complex. Police said that a fight broke out during one of the basketball games, and several people reported hearing a gunshot. But no witnesses saw a gun, and there were no victims of gunfire, according to police. 

"Again, no shooting victims; the only injuries that occurred were due to the chaos of hundreds of people leaving the facility," Garber said. "People quickly helped other people get help, people quickly left the facility, at this point there is no reason for the community to feel any concern."

The East Hempfield Police Department said six people were transported to hospitals and several others were treated on the scene. The injuries were non-life threatening.

A video posted on Facebook shows basketball players and spectators before people began running toward an exit.

Spooky Nook Complex Director of Marketing Mackenzie Bender estimated that visitor counts Sunday were in the 6,000 to 8,000 range.  

Bender said that when a tournament happens, Spooky Nook's security team sets up a blockade at the front door, checking every bag and purse that comes in. Spooky Nook also has armed and unarmed security in the building at all times.

The basketball tournament was organized by an outside entity, Marquee Hoops, which rented the facility. The teams were from several states, including New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania and a few others, Bender said.

East Hempfield Police are continuing to investigate and are reviewing video as well as speaking with witnesses. Bender said that Spooky Nook has security cameras, and its security team is reviewing those with the police.

On Monday, police said in a news release that there has been nothing to confirm the initial report of a gunshot being fired. "All known injuries were a result of the evacuation or sport specific.

"Anyone with video that would be helpful or witnessed a firearm being used during the disturbance is asked to contact East Hempfield Twp. PD  717-898-3103."

The latest breaking updates, delivered straight to your email inbox.

A transformative project is underway in Hamilton that is expected to bring one million people a year to the area.

Spooky Nook Sports Complex will cover 40 acres of the old Champion Paper Mill on B Street.

“This is a catalytic development, the likes of which this city hasn’t seen in a very long time,” said Brandon Saurber with the City of Hamilton.

The former industrial site will cover 1.2 million square feet.

“There will be two components of it – one is primarily the sports complex which is on this side of B Street, and the second part will be the convention center, which is on the riverside of B Street,” said founder, Sam Beiler.

Soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, basketball and volleyball will all be played on the site.

Beiler created the original Spooky Nook in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and is expanding the concept to the Greater Cincinnati area.

“When the folks walk in the front door and they go like this – wow. It’s because of the volume of the space and all of the activities that are happening,” Beiler said.

The facility could host tournaments with hundreds of teams. The site will also include amenities like sports medicine and food options for players.

The convention center site will become the second largest in the region.

It could have a massive economic impact on the area.

“In 2018, we had about a $90-million economic impact in the county and the surrounding areas in Pennsylvania,” Beiler said.

The Hamilton Spooky Nook Sports Complex is expected to open in December 2021.

UAW, Stellantis reach tentative agreement to end 6-week autoworkers' strike

Officials break ground for king corona, a big latin restaurant going in the spooky nook complex.

Oct. 23—The ownership group behind the planned King Corona Latin Kitchen and Cantina at Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill is investing heavily in the region.

The Hamilton King Corona will be the second, with the first already open in West Chester Twp.: Sonora Seafood Steak Bar & Grill. King Corona will be the ownership group's most massive: a two-story restaurant with a double-deck patio on the northern end of the Spooky Nook sports complex. The project will take about six to eight months to complete, and ground was broken today, Oct. 23.

"It's going to knock people's socks off," said Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dan Bates when the restaurant announcement was made. "It will make Spooky Nook a destination point every day of the week, not just for sporting events."

During the tournament season this past spring and summer, tens of thousands of people descended on the yet-to-be-completed Spooky Nook complex, which hosts sporting events and related activities on the west side of North B Street and the Champion Mill Conference Center and Warehouse Hotel on the east side.

Bates said the restaurant will add to the dining options with high-end Latin cuisine, but it will be more than that.

"They'll have high-quality food and drinks but also entertainment," he said. "They'll be focused on creating an experience for their diners."

The restaurant group is more than just King Corona, as they soon will own 19 El Rancho Grande locations (the 19th to open in the next several months in the Batavia area) and the recently opened Sonora Grill Steak and Seafood on Union Centre Pavillion in West Chester Twp.

"I think it's a great experience we have," said Arturo Magana, the restaurant group's managing partner and co-owner, of the Sonora Grill and other restaurants.

He believes the King Corona locations at 9421 Civic Centre Blvd. in West Chester and North B Street in Hamilton "are strong" and "can do well."

Nathan Taylor, a King Corona co-owner, said the Hamilton location will be "massive," as it's expected to be 14,000-plus square feet, nearly three times the size of the West Chester Twp. location.

"It's going to be two stories, a double-deck patio," he said of the Hamilton King Corona. "It's going to be huge."

Construction will take 6 to 8 months as they expect an opening in the summer or fall of 2024.

"It's a great city, it's a great population," Magana said of Hamilton. "We hear great things about it, and (the city) is growing up, too. You see things pop up everywhere."

Taylor said they're most excited to bring new jobs to the city as well as being a part of the Spooky Nook project.

Bates said when you have somebody who operates a lot of restaurants, they have their pick of locations as "they've already shown they know what they're doing and how to create success."

"To choose Hamilton, it's a pretty big deal," he said. "To choose Hamilton to showcase a 14,000-plus-square-foot restaurant is huge, and that's not the only site they're potentially interested in. They could have multiple locations in Hamilton. For them to have that confidence in where Hamilton's going, it's really exciting."

Magana and Taylor did not share any future Hamilton investment plans with the Journal-News, but Taylor, who serves as marketing director for the ownership group's other restaurant properties, said they plan to grow in the region. They have plans for a project in Fairfield, though he couldn't release details at this time, and they plan to expand upon the opening of the Dayton El Asadero Bar and Mexican Grill (the group does not own the Forest Park and Lexington, Ky., locations).

Look inside massive Spooky Nook Sports Complex as construction continues

HAMILTON, Ohio (FOX19) - Excitement continues to build as construction on the Spooky Nook Sports Complex progresses.

On Friday, the owner of Spooky Nook opened the doors to give a sneak peek of the progress.

The sound of saws and drills has been nonstop as the old Champion Paper Mill continues to be transformed into one of the largest indoor sporting complexes in North America.

“Up on the roofline attached to the tresses eventually, not yet, but you’ll see volleyball nets and basketball hoops come down so we can have a basketball tournament,” said Sam Beiler, who is the founder of Spooky Nook.

The 90,000 square foot area is just half of the sports center.

The other half will have 14 hardwood courts. The complex will also provide about 125,000 square feet of event space for trade shows and conventions.

Beiler says that this will be a game-changer for Hamilton.

“We expect upon opening to generate significantly to the number of people who are walking around the city,” said Beiler. “We had an event recently in Pennsylvania that generated 10,000 people per day. It was a basketball tournament.”

He expects the complex in Hamilton to do the same.

The project has hit some hiccups with the challenges of COVID and recent storm damage , but the construction has managed to push forward.

Beiler and other city leaders say their concern now is if they will be able to find enough employees to fill all of the roles.

“Hiring scares me,” said Dan Bates, the President of Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. “I think everybody is saying the same thing. Employees are hard to find right now, especially entry-level employees. So, hopefully by September when the unemployment bonuses end and they’re looking to start ramping up that people will be ready to get back to work.”

Bates says the city is experiencing massive growth right now, several new businesses are moving into the area. He says he also expects the project to benefit surrounding areas.

North York advances plan for Spooky Nook-style athletics complex

spooky nook complex map

North York officials advanced plans for a major athletic complex — previously compared to Spooky Nook by the developers — at the vacant fields of the former Central York High School.

Some questions, however, remained about the complex as the borough's planning committee moved the application on toward consideration by the full council.

At a planning meeting Tuesday night, developer Jeff Inch, of Inch and Co., said the complex would have 500 parking spaces, a gym facility, turf fields for a dozen sports and a wellness facility.

"It gets kids out of trouble, gives them a place to be, go to learn," Inch said. "You're not getting rich off of this thing, but if you run it the right way, you help a lot of people."

Spooky Nook Sports, located in Manheim, Lancaster County, is the largest indoor sports complex in the United States, offering indoor fields and courts for more than a dozen sports, according to its website. The Nook also offers outdoor recreation opportunities —  making it a hot destination for clubs, tournaments and competitions, it says.

Since the first announcements of a development project at the former high school, concerns regarding pricing came into question.

"I think it's a great idea," resident Emily Marie said, "but my concern is: Will it be affordable for local kids or is it going to just be a money maker for those proposing this idea?"

During Tuesday's meeting, Inch initially said gym memberships to the facility could start at $39 a month.

"Some of these questions we haven't gotten really deep into yet," Inch said. "But I hope to be somewhere, you know, $39 to $59 somewhere now. I think there's going to be a lot of levels to it ... I want to make it affordable for people, but at the same time we're going to keep the lights on."

Some residents in attendance countered the idea immediately, stating that North York has mostly low income households that couldn't afford the prices Inch named.

As further dialogue and ideas bounced around, the possibility of a borough discount was suggested.

"We're trying to balance the whole thing so that it breaks even or, somewhere around breaking even," Inch said. "I don't want to say, 'yes, we're going to do this 100%' because it affects a whole lot of things down the road. But I think my brother and I, I think our purpose is to be able to give the borough at least a discount on the membership."

In addition to the pricing scale, Inch said the facility could partner with a large area medical provider to bring services such as hydrotherapy and massages. Though he could not disclose which provider is involved, Inch confirmed the sports complex will be named after the medical provider. He also said the partner will be "invested in some way into it."

"This isn't a profit play," Inch said. "We'd be better off doing something else with our time, but we are determined to bring something to York that hasn't been in York."

The former Central York School District property languished for years without any movement toward redevelopment — despite previous attempts by others. That includes local restaurant owner Themistoklis Sacarellos, whose proposal to turn the space into a warehouse was rejected by the North York Borough Council in 2021.

Work at the site could start as early as next month, as Inch and Co. is actively seeking a demolition permit to start cleaning up the property.

Working on an "ultra-aggressive" timetable, Inch said, he would ideally want to see the facility open in the beginning of 2024.

"We want to be in there moving as soon as possible, and we want to build it as soon as possible," Inch said. "All we wait on is the permits and the approval to do that. And so we push as hard as we can to make that happen."

4 ambitious buildings in Moscow that took forever to build (and they’re still not ready!)

Like every huge capital, Moscow has some buildings that seem (or seemed) to remain unfinished forever.

Like every huge capital, Moscow has some buildings that seem (or seemed) to remain unfinished forever.

1. Underground mall near Paveletsky railway station

A foundation pit surely looks impressive - by now, however, it's all you can see on this ambitious construction site.

A foundation pit surely looks impressive - by now, however, it's all you can see on this ambitious construction site.

Construction began : 2007

Current status (March 2019): awaiting reconstruction

In 2018, Muscovites were quite surprised to find a new reservoir, basically a small lake, in the city center – at least according to Yandex.Maps app. The algorithm mistook a giant water-filled foundation pit near Paveletsky railway station for a lake, which after heavy rains, had turned into a muddy reservoir. The wannabe-lake had been around for a while.

Ten years before, Kazakh businessman, Mukhtar Ablyazov, started an ambitious project, buying land near the railway station to build a giant underground mall. The scheme swiftly ran into problems when Ablyazov faced a criminal prosecution and lay dormant for a decade.

“It’s a big issue that one of the city’s main squares is in such pitiful condition,” said Moscow’s chief architect Sergei Kuznetsov, speaking in 2017. Now, after all legal questions have been resolved, new owners of the project are expected to finish the mall by late 2020. Perhaps Lake Paveletskaya will disappear from the city’s map for good.

2. Oceanarium on Poklonnaya Hill

Not much fish here so far...

Construction began : 2006

Current status : awaiting reconstruction (a modified version)

Another of Mukhtar Ablyazov’s gigantic and ambitious projects involved constructing Eastern Europe’s biggest aquarium (plus a hotel) on Poklonnaya Hill in western Moscow. This also went down the drain after Ablyazov faced criminal charges, leaving only around 10 percent of the project completed.

At the same time, the financial crisis of 2008 hit, so it was too expensive for developers to buy the project out. After a decade of legal battles, a new developer acquired the project and in late 2018 city authorities approved construction of the oceanarium, but the hotel will be replaced with a residential complex. The most important thing is that there will still be plenty of sharks and other fish in the public aquarium.

3. Zenith business center

The Zenith business center before the reconstruction began. It was quite a landmark, though an ugly one.

Construction began : 1991

Current status : under reconstruction

A giant blue crystal that dominates a whole south-western Moscow neighborhood, the 22-storey building of the Zenith business center is as old as the modern, post-Soviet, Russian state. According to the original 1989 project, the center was the property of the Academy of National Economy: its president Abel Aganbegyan launched a joint venture with an Italian company, Valany International.

As often happens, the original plan didn’t work out: in 1994, when the building was 80 percent ready, the Italian government arrested Valany International’s entire senior management team and put them behind bars on corruption and mafia-related charges. The Zenith project hit the pause button – for 25 years.

Ever since, the ugly unfinished skyscraper, its interior full of piles of rusting garbage, has been a Moscow landmark. It has also been subject to endless legal and financial battles; both finishing construction or demolishing it being deemed too expensive. Meanwhile, adventure-seekers spared no effort trying to get in to the “Blue Tooth”, (its popular nickname); in 2008 a young man died after falling down an elevator shaft. Slowly, the retro-reflective mirrors that form the building’s façade were fracturing, and with it the “Blue Tooth”  grew less and less picturesque, a symbol of glorious decay .

Reconstruction goes on (March 2019).

Finally , in 2016 Moscow city government decided to finish the project by 2021, investing 8.7 billion rubles ($132 million). As of now, the building - with almost all its mirrors removed - looks like a skeleton, but there’s hope it will get better.

4. TV center building on Shabolovka

That's how that almost ancient building on the Shabolovka street looks like.

That's how that almost ancient building on the Shabolovka street looks like.

Construction began : 1986

Current status : unclear

The record-breaking champion of Moscow’s unfinished construction projects in terms of time – only the infamous Khovrino hospital, where ground was broken in 1980 and its uncompleted shell torn down in 2018, was older – Shabolovka Street’s TV Center in southern Moscow is a 14-storey high, gloomy Soviet style building. Begun in the 1980s, it was almost finished when the government ran out of money and construction stopped.

At first, the Soviet state meant to give the building to the Military Space Force but in the 1990s decided to turn it into a TV center as it sits adjacent to an earlier television center. That did nothing to solve all the money and property issues, though. Legally the building now belongs to the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) but it remains unfinished.

“There’s nothing to do here, except for the roof – the view is spectacular!” users used to write on squatters forums – they loved getting inside and exploring the garbage-filled, empty floors. Today security is stricter, so it’s hard to get in. Otherwise, the situation has not changed much. Construction can be renewed after VGTRK solves all the questions with the property, but it remains unclear when that will happen.
