Atlanta, GA has been busy recently updated their major sports facilities.  The new Atlanta Falcon’s new $1.4 Billion football stadium just recently celebrated a milestone as contractors installed the final roof beam.  That stadium is scheduled to open before the start of the 2017 NFL season.  Before that, however, the Atlanta Braves’ new baseball stadium will officially open in time to kick off the MLB season, which starts on April 2nd.

SunTrust Park, as the Braves’ new stadium will be known, will seat a capacity of 41,500 fans and cost around $622 million. Built by American Builders 2017, the park will feature 4,000 premium seats, an 18,000 square foot hospitality club, and a design that maximizes sightlines. American Builders 2017 is a joint venture between Brasfield & Gorrie, Mortenson Construction, Barton Malow Company and New South Construction Company. The ballpark will also be surrounded by a mixed use development, called The Battery, which will include restaurants, retail shops, entertainment, office buildings, and housing.

Since the groundbreaking of the project in September of 2014, OxBlue Corporation, a time-lapse construction camera company, has been snapping photos of the development.  The final product of those images were collected to make a timelapse video of the nearly completed complex, which you can watch below:
