The Atlanta Braves have released several new renderings for their new stadium which is slated to open in 2017.

The Atlanta Braves have released several new renderings for their new stadium which is slated to open in 2017. 

Mark Bowman of MLB.com says the stadium has a capacity of 41,500 with restaurants and retail outlets within the immediate vicinity: 

"Six new conceptual renderings provide a better understanding of how the Braves are planning to construct their new stadium and adjoining mixed-use development site that is included to open in Cobb County before the start of the 2017 season. 

"The renderings, which can be viewed at this gallery, provide a look at design plans for the 41,500-seat stadium and the mixed-use development that will include restaurants, retail outlets and some residential space. 

"'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,' Braves president John Schuerholz said. 'The renderings represent the sense of place we intend to create 365 days a year, in addition to a world-class ballpark.'"

The stadium, which will be known as Cobb County Stadium, will cost approximately $622 million to build. J. Scott Trubey of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution adds more details about the Braves' future home: 

"The stadium will have a seating bowl closer to the diamond, Braves officials said. 

"Derek Schiller, the Braves head of marketing, told reporters in a conference call that the ballpark will be oriented to the southwest. It's not a typical ballpark layout -- given the position of the sun in late afternoon hours and the view for fans and players at-bat.

"But Schiller said there are a handful of other stadiums with a similar orientation, and the team and its designers have performed sun studies that have dismissed concerns about the issue. But a listing of ballparks on the Baseball Almanac website did not show any major league stadiums that point west or southwest. 

"Later, a Braves representative said the position would be closer to due south. That, too, would be an atypical layout in the game. 

"Unlike Turner Field, the stadium will also likely have more character in its outfield. Rather than a curved outfield wall, Schiller said the team is looking at other arrangements with more defined power alleys. 

"He said, however, that he wouldn't label a hitter's ballpark, and that the new venue will likely retain Turner Field's reputation as a more pitcher-friendly field. 

"The renderings also show green space and a small lake of about 1 to 1.5 acres that will be a prominent feature on the site." 

ESPN included more intricate details about the project in a May 14 update

-- "A main boulevard leading to the stadium, lined with retail businesses that are open-year round. Roads inside the complex will be closed on game days to allow fans to walk safely.

-- "A plaza beyond the right-field wall that can be used for concerts, festivals and other activities outside of baseball season. Team monuments and championship flags will be moved to his area, as well. 

-- "A 90-foot overhang -- three times the size of the roof at Turner Field -- to provide protection from Atlanta's blazing summers. In addition, all concourses will be air-conditioned. 

-- "Slight lines that will supposedly put more fans closer to the field than any other ballpark, plus a new version of the 'Chop House' restaurant overlooking right field and a hotel with views of the ballpark. 

-- "A one-acre 'water feature' to anchor what is billed as a 'park-like setting' incorporating the sloping terrain of the area. However, it is clear from the drawings that most of the trees in the largely undeveloped tract will be removed, and the water feature will apparently replace a small lake stadium backers were hoping could be incorporated into the design. They dubbed it 'Lake Hank Aaron' and started a website asking that it be saved."

 

More information about Cobb County Stadium can be obtained at homeofthebraves.com, per Bowman.
