Tentative Timeline Released for Braves Construction

Braves Development

Despite having a few more weeks to choose a developer, the Atlanta Braves have announced the tentative timeline for the construction of their new Cobb stadium and mixed-use development. The Braves will make final decision regarding the development team by May 27th and site clearing on the new land is set to begin on July 15th. The land should be clear by September 4th, when actual grating and site work is scheduled to begin. Major construction is slated to begin on Feb 18th of 2015 and deliver by Feb 21st of 2017 for the soft opening. Many question as to whether such a huge project can be completed under these tight time frames, but the Braves don’t really have a choice in the matter. Their lease at Turner Field expires in 2017 and Mayor Reed has already expressed that the city has no interest in renewing their deal on a year-to-year basis.
