    The area around Coors field is awesome. If they can pull it off then it will be a billion times better than what was around Turner Field.

    The area around Coors Field is indeed awesome. It's very much the model for what communities hope to achieve with a new ballpark.

    That said, it's really difficult for me to imagine replicating downtown Denver in Cobb County.

    It reminds me of the new ballpark village that was recently completed in St. Louis (which is so much fun) ... except out in the middle of nowhere.

    I think the place will be full on the weekends and during the summer. But I imagine they'll run into some problems getting people there on a consistent basis on weeknights and when school is in. So about 3.5 months or so of the season is going to be a tough problem for the Braves to figure out. You're not going to have a bunch of families wanting to hang out late when they've got school/work the next day. Extenting MARTA might help there, get some of those young hipster weirdos to the stadium.

    Or as John Hart would say

    Look, here we got a premiere stadium with a great venue for people to meet and congregate and have a good time and a few beers, as well as keeping up with the American family tradition of bringing your kids to a baseball game.

    Look, there are going to be so many other activities surronding the ballpark that are going to be fun and exciting and provide our fans the best experience there is in MLB baseball.

    Look, here you see a stadium that is completely packed on a nightly basis enjoying the southern weather and watching a team capable of winning the World Series.

    Look, here we got a guy in Freeman as you can see on the jumbo-screen that just absolutely crushes a pitch and leads the Braves to the World Series.

    The Denver region also has a really nice public transit system, including a network of buses that run into downtown Denver with regularity from across the area, a dedicated bus line for Rockies' home games and a new light rail system that drops people off a few blocks from Coors Field. I've never lived in Atlanta, but it certainly seems like the go-to solution for transportation woes, and certainly the option being discussed for SunTrust, is to build another highway or ten.

    At least with the MARTA situation at Turner Field you could technically walk to either the Georgia State or even Five Points stations from the stadium.

    What is the nearest MARTA station to the Galleria/Cobb area? Perimeter?

    I don't like the idea of having to drive to the stadium for a multitude of reasons (drinking, cost, traffic, etc).

    MARTA doesn't go to Cobb County. They have their own bus system. http://www.cobbcounty.org/index.php?...462&Itemid=421

    Yeah, but what is the nearest MARTA station?

    I took CCT, once, from Cumberland Mall to Lindbergh MARTA ... travel/wait time was over an hour.

    I would truly hope that nobody would really seriously consider using bus transit to reach SunTrust, only because the traffic is already pretty unbearable in that immediate area.

    yeah, this is gonna suck. getting to weeknight games is going to be next to impossible for many people out there. maybe that's not unlike the current setup, but i'll be damned if i'm going to go sit on freeways for hours to get there. and this knowing that i'll have to get in rush hour traffic if i don't want to be late. but hey, at least they'll have a chipotle outside the stadium because i'll be damned if i can't see a baseball game without a great fan "experience".
