Mosaic and Community Leaders Celebrate Streamsong® Resort Progress

March 01, 2012   |   ShareThis

The Mosaic Company recently provided community leaders the opportunity to see firsthand the progress being made on the formerly mined land that will one day be home to Streamsong® Resort.

Mosaic is developing the resort, golf and conference center destination on approximately 16,000 acres of formerly mined phosphate land in rural Polk County between Tampa and Orlando.

During a lakeside event at the future site of Streamsong’s main lodge, Mosaic and other Streamsong partners shared their vision and optimism with more than 100 guests while unveiling new resort renderings and details. Among those joining for the presentations were Mosaic President and CEO, Jim Prokopanko, and Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Rich Mack, as well as representatives of Alfonso Architects, the resort’s designer, PCL Construction Services, the resort’s general contractor, Interstate Hotels and Resorts, the resort’s recently announced management company and KemperSports, which will lead the resort’s golf operations.

“Our goal is to create a destination that celebrates the land’s heritage and offers a view of natural Florida that isn’t found at the high-rise coastal hotels and theme park resorts commonly visited by travelers to the state,” said Prokopanko. “We are confident that our investment in Streamsong will one day lead to even further economic opportunity for this region by creating new jobs, increasing the local tax base, uplifting local businesses that will supply the resort with goods and services, and by bringing corporate decision-makers to a part of Florida they might otherwise never experience.”

Following the lakeside reception and program, guests had the opportunity to tour the two 18-hole golf courses being constructed by architectural firms Coore & Crenshaw, and Renaissance Golf Design.
