Three days after his former partner announced a renaming of the prosposed $2 billion Planet Oasis project to Arcadia, developer David Glimcher issued his own release Monday morning, stating that he was moving “full steam ahead” with the $2 billion entertainment entertainment complex in Sunbury under its original name.
In a statement, Glimcher said he and business partner Lenni Male, the two partners in Planet Oasis Ohio LLC, are “bringing in world-class operators of unique attractions, experiential restaurants, several amusement rides, interactive entertainment venues” and other draws to the project. He envisions an alternative health and wellness facility with a hotel in addition to multiple entertainment facilities that also will include action sports facilities.
Glimcher said his company has had “major meetings with the Ohio Department of Transportation and Delaware County officials” in recent weeks as it works on details of the plans.
After announcing the Planet Oasis proposal in June, Glimcher and Sekulovski parted ways in October. Later that month, two of the partners originally announced — an action sports operator and a movie theater company — said they remained on board with Sekulovski’s group.
Last month, Sekulovski filed a lawsuit in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas seeking a declaratory judgment that he and his company hold all legal rights and obligations to purchase and develop the 350 acres in Sunbury that are the site of the proposed complex.
Glimcher has insisted that his company, Planet Oasis, would be the one to develop the 350-acre project.
