Atlanta Braves Release New Renderings of Mixed-Use Development at SunTrust Park
Wakefield Beasley & Associates Named Lead Architectural Design Firm of the Mixed-Use Development
Today the Atlanta Braves released four new conceptual renderings of the mixed-use development surrounding SunTrust Park.
The team also announced Atlanta-based architectural design firm Wakefield Beasley & Associates as the lead designer of the mixed-used development. The company has designed mixed-use developments throughout the southeast, including The Forum in Norcross, Ga., Town Center at Atlantic Station and Avalon in Alpharetta, Ga.
The new renderings provide additional architectural detail, highlight the massing of proposed buildings, showcase the interaction of SunTrust Park and various elements of the mixed-use project, and demonstrate the integration of the project with the surrounding area.
The new community, which will encompass more than 60 contiguous acres of property at the northern intersection of I-75 and I-285 in Atlanta, will feature destination shopping and dining, living spaces, an entertainment venue, an office tower and a hotel that will have views into SunTrust Park. A mix of hardscapes and green spaces are integrated throughout the project. The main plaza that connects SunTrust Park with the rest of the community is designed for public gatherings, including pre and postgame programming on game days along with non-game day special events and activities.
More than 6,000 shared and dedicated parking spaces are planned immediately adjacent to the SunTrust Park and within the mixed-use community, with thousands more within walking distance of the ballpark.
Both the ballpark and mixed-use development will open in April 2017. To view or download these renderings go to www.braves.com/suntrustpark.
