Braves to have new stadium for 2017

The Atlanta Braves are leaving Turner Field when their 20 year lease agreement runs out after the 2016 season.

Turner Field has served as the home of the Braves since the 1997 season. The new stadium will be located in Cobb County near the intersection of I-75 and 285.

“We believe the new stadium location is easy to access while also giving our fans a first-rate game day experience in and around the ballpark and making it a 365-day-a-year destination,” Braves president John Schuerholz said.

The estimated cost of the stadium, parking and related infrastructure estimates to cost $672 million, with the Braves paying a significant portion of it.

Obviously more details and photos are forthcoming.
