Checking In: College Football Hall of Fame Construction

New, 4 comments

While significant work has been done on the future site of the College Football Hall of Fame since Curbed last checked in, the most interesting new(ish) developments may be on its website. We're not sure exactly when they were added, but the site for downtown's upcoming homage to pigskin — a 94,000 square-foot development slotted for a fall 2014 opening — has gotten some killer new renderings and a five-minute virtual tour (not to mention a live cam of construction).

Among the coolest features seem to be a display modeled after a full-size indoor field, a big-time 3D theater and a wall with roughly one bazillion football helmets.

Originally stationed in South Bend, Ind. (the home of Notre Dame), the move to Atlanta will put the College Football Hall of Fame next to Centennial Olympic Park and the Georgia World Congress Center, on the latter's former Green lot. Ground was officially broken at the end of January after an eight-year effort to poach the hall from Fightin' Irish country. Heavy construction on the $66.5 million project began a few weeks later. Nothing particularly riveting is actually built yet, but it appears construction crews have a pretty solid foundation (literally and figuratively) under way.
