Revealed: $400 Million Mixed-Use Development Adjacent to Cobb County Baseball Stadium
"The Atlanta Braves released new renderings today of the mixed-used development the team plans to build next to their new Cobb County stadium," reports J. Scott Trubey. The new renderings released by the team provided much anticipated detail about how the team intends to pull off its high-profile move to the suburbs.
"The Braves have promised to build a $400 million mixed-use district that will include shops, restaurants, bars, residences and office space. The private development was a key selling point to Cobb leaders’ approval of a potential $400 million in public support for the neighboring $622 million ballpark."
The plans for the ballpark were criticized in November for lackluster pedestrian planning. So far the new renderings have received a much more positive review, although it seems critics of the plan are barely refraining from pushing the snark button.
