Many people have some sort of ballpark near their house. Now, Cobb County residents can have the new Atlanta Braves' stadium in their backyard.
The Battery Atlanta is a mixed-use haven in Cobb County that features retail and office space, hundreds of apartments and, of course, the new home of the Braves.
“This is the first masterplan asset that connects a mixed-use with the intent of having it anchored by a professional sports stadium,” said Jeremy Strife, the vice president of Braves Development and general manager of The Battery Atlanta.
As far as concerns about traffic, Strife said, “because we have 360-degree parking around the assets, we’re able to get you in and out the most efficient way possible.”
The Braves’ first home game at SunTrust Park is March 31, an exhibition game against the New York Yankees.
The first home game of the regular season is April 14 against the San Diego Padres.
