ATLANTA, GA – The Atlanta Braves have released conceptual drawings of their planned 41,000-plus seat Cobb County Stadium.
The drawings have a stadium with at least four decks and a broad sun canopy with gathering places for fans.
“This is a very early look at how our vision is shaping up and, even though we are still months away from final plans and drawings, we are very pleased with the progress,” said Braves President John Schuerholz, said in a news release. “The renderings represent the sense of place we intend to create 365 days a year in addition to a world-class ballpark.”
The Braves announced in November they planned to move to Cobb into a new $622 million stadium for the 2017 season. The team also plans to open the first phase of its surrounding mixed-use project, a blend of bars, shops, restaurants, office space, hotels and residences, in 2017 with full completion slated for 2019.
Also the Braves announced a new waiting list for non-season ticket holders interested in buying season packages for the new stadium. More information is available at www.braves.com/newballpark and www.homeofthebraves.com
