New Aerials Offer Falcon's-Eye View of Stadium Project

The New Atlanta Stadium, as it's being called for now, is starting to dwarf the Doomed Dome next door. Officials have said that between $2 and $3 million of work is completed on the $1.4 billion project every single day, and it's beginning to show. These new aerial photos, compiled by, show the project in July, as workers continued to pour elevated concrete decks and columns on all sides of the stadium, making it literally rise up. Work also began last month on the facility's exterior masonry block wall. Toward Philips Arena, all of the precast components for the new detached parking garage are in place. And, at last check, installation of the dramatic steel roof was scheduled to start late this summer.
