Atlanta Braves move to new SunTrust Park in April

Post by Pete » Mon Feb 20, 2017 9:19 am

man I was driving down i-75 in the wee hours a few days ago and I guess they were testing the graphics boards or something and the entire sky in front of me lit up bright red. I thought NK did a nuke strike on Atlanta lol. I was like "WTF was that?"

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- The Atlanta Braves announced their 2017 promotion schedule for their first season at SunTrust Park.

The season begins with opening weekend events April 14-16 like a commemorative ticket and magnetic schedule giveaway.

The Braves will host several theme nights for topics like Star Wars and nostalgic decades.

"Every Saturday home game, starting with the May 6 contest against the St. Louis Cardinals, will be a theme night in the ballpark. Theme nights will give fans the chance to enjoy pregame and in-game activities related to the theme, limited-edition concession and merchandise items, and the option to purchase a ticket package that comes with a themed giveaway or experience," the Braves said in a release.


(musical acts announced thus far Billy Joel and Metallica)

Another publicly funded money pit.

The fans up here on the fashionable north side actually buy tickets. Who in blue Hell wanted to drive into the former location? Nobody

Cobb County obviously has the foresight to anticipate the long-term tax benefits of this development:

On November 20, 2013, the Braves unveiled plans to build a $400 million entertainment district that will surround the ballpark.[27] The district will feature a street lined with retail, restaurants and bars leading up to the stadium.[27] The $400 million is entirely funded by the Braves and their development partners.[27] On October 14, 2015 the Atlanta Braves announced that the complex would be called The Battery Atlanta.[31]

On March 17, 2015, the Braves announced a partnership with Comcast under which Comcast will provide high-tech infrastructure for SunTrust Park and will become an anchor tenant at The Battery Atlanta.[32] Comcast will occupy 100% of a nine-story office building in the mixed-use development adjacent to the stadium.[32] The office tower, which will overlook the ballpark, will become Comcast's Southeast regional headquarters.[32] According to Braves chairman and CEO Terry McGuirk, Comcast will "lend its expertise to drive the most technologically advanced ballpark and mixed-use development ever built."[32] Some 1,000 Comcast employees will work at the office building, most of them new hires.[32] The office also will include an "innovation lab" for new technologies.[32]

On April 28, 2015, the Braves announced a 50-50 partnership with Omni Hotels & Resorts on a luxury hotel to be built overlooking SunTrust Park.[33] The full service hotel will be 16 floors and have 260 rooms.[33] It also will feature a two-story restaurant, rooftop hospitality suites, and an elevated pool deck with views into the ballpark.[33] The Atlanta Braves will be the 50/50 owners with Omni Hotels & Resorts.[33]

On July 16, 2015, the Braves and concert promoter Live Nation announced a deal to develop and manage the long-planned entertainment venue adjacent to SunTrust Park.[34] The venue will be called the Roxy Theatre in homage to the old Roxy Theatre that was torn down in 1972.[34] The venue will have standing room-only capacity for 4,000 and feature about 40 music and comic shows annually.[34] The theater is designed to help drive activity to the site on non-gamedays and it will also play host to special events.[34]

The first restaurants announced for The Battery Atlanta were: Antico Pizza, Cru Food and Wine Bar, Tomahawk Taproom featuring Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q, chef Ford Fry’s Superica restaurant and a new steak concept by chef Linton Hopkins.[31]

On May 19, 2016, the Braves announced several new signed tenants at The Battery Atlanta including Wahlburgers, Harley-Davidson, and Goldbergs Bagel Co. & Deli.[35] The opening of the restaurant outside the Braves’ new Cobb County ballpark is expected to be featured prominently in “Wahlburgers,” the brothers’ A&E reality television show about the business.[35] Another big operator, national restaurant, retail, casino and entertainment venue developer Cordish Cos., plans a trio of concepts including a Professional Bull Riders Association Bar & Grill, featuring a mechanical bull.[35]

Publicly funded stadiums have proven time and time again to not provide a ROI worth the investment.

The public keeps getting fooled by billionaires asking for money to build their stadiums. Now Cobb County has to raise taxes to pay for it.
