Thanks to a half-dozen cranes and some 250 daily workers, the future home of the "Atlanta" Braves is roughly one-fifth finished right now, with less than two years remaining before its spring 2017 big-league debut. As this Visual Journey proves, the $462 million project is definitely going vertical, but builders still have their work cut out for them. The site includes vistas of Kennesaw Mountain to one side and Cobb Galleria the other, hugged by interstates 75 and 285 and smaller thoroughfares such as Windy Ridge Parkway. Construction on the surrounding mixed-use component doesn't appear to be nearly as active as the stadium itself. The project might not yet have the visual impact of its NFL counterpart downtown, but with the pricey foundation laid, it's a safe bet this thing will quickly rise up, too.
