NOTE: Unfortunately, we were contacted by the Atlanta Braves and asked to take our drone video of the Suntrust Park site down. Feel free to post your comments, below. Please enjoy our other videos and the rest of this website.
Here is a DJI Phantom drone video of the new Atlanta Braves stadium site, Suntrust Park, filmed on October 6, 2014. The stadium slated to open for the 2017 season, is at the northwest corner of where I-75 and 285 meet in Cobb County.
According to the Braves, “Our new location will give us the opportunity to develop the surrounding area of the new ballpark, transforming it into a mixed use, 365-day destination and creating an enhanced atmosphere for our fans during Braves games. There also will be significantly increased access to the site, enhanced parking opportunities, and, generally, easier access to and from major roadways with a variety of other transportation options.”
They go on to say, “The ballpark is designed with the fans in mind. With 41,500 seats, the more intimate configuration maximizes sightlines and elevations, placing a higher percentage of seats closer to the field than any other ballpark in Major League Baseball. A 90-foot roof — three times the size of our current roof — and air conditioning on every level will ensure that a majority of fans are cool on hot summer days. Youngsters will be able to run the bases on a mini-field kids’ zone adjacent to the ballpark. The popular Chop House will not only overlook the action on the field but the action on the plaza outside the front gate. The existing topography of the property has been carefully integrated into the design. The intimacy of the ballpark will be accentuated by building the facility into the gently sloping terrain. Trees will separate parking sections that cascade down the slopes. Because of the way the ballpark nestles into the hillside, fans will arrive on the home plate side of the park on the mezzanine level, while entering the outfield side (off the plaza) at field level. The plaza will be a grand central gathering space for fans, families, residents and visitors. It will serve as a hub of activity, with new and fresh events throughout the year. Residents and visitors might catch a concert, movie or a craft beer in the entertainment venues neighboring the plaza, or enjoy a weekend street festival. On game days, members of Braves Country will gather in the plaza, surrounded by iconic team monuments and championship flags.”
