Atlanta Falcons Break Ground on New Stadium

Work has officially commenced on a new stadium projected to open in 2017 in Atlanta. With a $1.2 billion price tag, the 71,000-seat stadium designed by 360 Architecture will incorporate many high-tech features such as an innovative retractable roof and 360-degree video board. It will also utilize the latest in sustainable building practices to help reduce the environmental impact of the new construction.
