With the hope of landing an NHL as the carrot, The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners approved a plan forwarded by Krause Sports and Entertainment to develop a proposed $2 billion-plus entertainment hub for north Georgia. The Gathering at South Forsyth’s plans include an 80-acre mixed-use development, including a premier arena designed to host sports, major entertainment events, community events and more. If the Krause group can land an NHL team, the county will contribute $390 million to the effort.

Plans for The Gathering at South Forsyth development will include a 700,000-square-foot arena, with the County’s investment commencing with an NHL expansion team award. The arena will be part of a mixed-use development and entertainment complex including: 1,800 multifamily units, 150 single-family units, 1.6 million square feet of office and retail space, and hotels.

Atlanta has had two NHL teams depart for other cities since 1980.
