It’s just 6 months before opening day in Cobb County

In recent weeks, visitors to these hallowed webpages have toured the rising Atlanta Falcons new stadium, seen glimpses of what the Hawks revamped arena will look like in 2018, and paid homage to Turner Field as Hank Aaron tossed the ceremonial last pitch there.

So it’s only fair that we swing out to Cobb County and see how the Atlanta Braves’ future environs are shaping up. Especially since opening day is merely six months away now.

Recent developments from this Braves new frontier include the announcement of a year-round Terrapin “brew lab” at The Battery, a large mixed-use piece adjacent to the ballpark. Renderings of the reincarnated Chop House promise a rather awesome viewing experience. And to finally, completely eradicate traffic issues, the Braves have pushed back start times a half-hour for weekday games to 7:30 p.m.

So, without further ado, have a gander at these images from a couple of weeks ago:
