Ballpark and mixed-use development scheduled to open before 2017 season

Renderings show Braves' new stadium plans

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 scheduled 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."

Fans wishing to purchase season tickets to Braves games at the new stadium can join a wait list by going to www.braves.com/newballpark to register with a $100 refundable deposit, which can be applied to the cost of the season tickets.

The renderings and other information about the Braves' new ballpark can be found at homeofthebraves.com.
