Atlanta Braves choose architect for new stadium

MARIETTA, Ga. — The Atlanta Braves have chosen an architect for the team's new stadium in the city's northwest suburbs.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the team chose Kansas City-based Populous, a firm which has designed 19 Major League Baseball stadiums.

Braves spokeswoman Beth Marshall said the team has selected Populous, though it is still in the contract negotiation stage and will need approval from Cobb County.

Last week, the team closed on land to build the $672 million ballpark in Cobb County.

The team hopes to open the stadium for the 2017 season.

The project is set to take the team out of downtown Atlanta for the first time since it moved to Georgia from Milwaukee in 1966.
