ATLANTA — The Braves’ goal, franchise chairman Terry McGuirk said, has been to create the the most technologically advanced ballpark in history.

They took a major step in that plan for SunTrust Park and its surrounding area Tuesday, announcing a multi-year technology and real estate partnership with Comcast.

“From the outset, we said the Braves would set a new standard of excellence in every aspect of this project,” McGuirk said.

Comcast will provide video, voice and high-speed Internet connectivity throughout the 60-acre project, which includes the ballpark, retail shops, restaurants, an office tower, hotel, entertainment venue and residential units. Comcast will also become the largest tenant in the development, filling a nine-story office overlooking the stadium.

The facility, which will stand as Comcast’s headquarters in the Southeast, will house more than 1,000 employees. The building will also feature 15,000-20,000 square feet of restaurant and hospitality space facing into the SunTrust Park plaza.

“The innovation that the Braves and Comcast are bringing to SunTrust Park and the surrounding community will be an enormous point of pride for all of Georgia and will put us squarely on a national stage,” said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. “I’m particularly excited by Comcast’s plans to create hundreds of jobs and to invest in a new center for technology collaboration.

“Georgia benefits when imaginative new technology and economic development initiatives like this come to our state.”
Located in Atlanta at the intersection of I-75 and I-285, SunTrust Park is scheduled to be completed by Opening Day 2017.
