The Atlanta Braves have released preliminary renderings of the massive stadium and mixed-used entertainment complex planned on the new Cobb County site. The renderings, posted to homeofthebraves.com, were accompanied by this news:

The Atlanta Braves and other private partners, will privately fund 100 percent of a signature mixed-use development that will encompass its proposed baseball stadium. The development, which will total between 700,000 and 1 million square feet of retail, restaurant, residential, hotel and office space, constitutes a $400 million private investment in the Cumberland CID.

Intended to thrive 365-days-a-year, the mixed-use development will provide additional entertainment options in the Cobb Galleria area, further helping to fuel activity and development along Cobb Parkway north of I-285.

By building out the development at the same time as the construction of the stadium, the project will yield an immediate, positive economic impact for Cobb County, the metro Atlanta area and Georgia through the creation of new jobs and generation of additional sales and property tax revenues.
