Georgia State University and its development partners have officially agreed to buy Turner Field to transform the property into an extension of the campus and mixed-use development. Mayor Kasim Reed and city officials made the announcement this morning at The Ted.

The soon-to-be-former Braves stadium will be converted for use by the GSU Panthers football team, while real estate partners Carter and Oakwood Development will build offices, retail, homes, restaurants and more on surrounding property.

The $300 million deal is expected to be final before the end of the year.
