Atlanta Braves stadium: effect on the construction industry in Georgia

Residents of Cobb County Georgia are bracing themselves for months of navigating construction sites in the area of the new Atlanta Braves stadium and proposed mixed-use project. What’s called a “live-play-work” district will incorporate office space, retail and restaurant establishments, and residential housing. Mixed-use developments are becoming increasingly popular in Georgia as is evidenced by Atlantic Station in Atlanta and Avalon in Alpharetta. The Braves stadium construction is expected to have a positive affect on the construction industry as a whole in Georgia.

The new Braves stadium is a $622 million dollar project in and of itself.  Stadium construction will be led by a group of contractors, including Mortenson Construction, Brasfield & Gorrie, Barton Marlow and New South Construction.

The construction industry rose 5% in Georgia from 2013 to 2014, even before this project got underway.
