With 43% growth in 16 years, Baldwin County’s population is growing fast! Add to that number the over 6.2 million tourists annually and you have a built in population that demands new and varied services. Yet the dining, retail and entertainment options haven’t kept pace with the influx of people. OWA intends to deliver those sought after options — and raise the bar on quality at the same time!
OWA is a joint venture with the City of Foley and its Foley Sports Complex. In 2012, the City approached the Poarch Band of Creek Indians about a partnership to bring an entertainment destination venue to Baldwin County. Originally billed as Blue Collar Country, the Tribe is the sole owner and developer of what is now known as OWA. The City of Foley retains ownership of the sports complex.
In conjunction with the integration of the sports fields and event center planned by the City of Foley, CIEDA’s concept for the project is to create a family-friendly retail, dining and entertainment destination, targeting individuals of all ages.
