KINGSLAND, Ga. (AP) -- A developer says it plans to build a $100 million resort with built-in tourist attractions on a site along Interstate 95 near the Georgia coast.

The Florida Times-Union reports Minneapolis-based Real Development Corp. says the development will include a hotel and conference center, an adventure park, a movie theater, retail shops and restaurants, a zip-line and ropes course and a water park.

The resort would be located on 575 acres in Kingsland, not far from the Georgia-Florida state line. The project's consultants say the resort would employ about 800 people.

Kingsland Mayor Kenneth Smith says the project has been in the works for about two years. It's now becoming public as the developer prepares to ask the city for land-use permits.
