Atlanta Braves’ 1.5M-SF MXU Adds More Tenants

The real estate arm of the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball franchise is adding more non-game-related experiences to The Battery Atlanta, its 1.5-million-square-foot mixed-use development outside SunTrust Park.

It’s in keeping with the Braves Development Company’s goal of making the complex “a year-round lifestyle destination for the Southeast,” as CEO Mike Platt put it.

Among these additions will be the first Atlanta location for The VOID, a virtual-reality experience center. It’s set to open in January 2019.

Another new offering will be Rock/Creek, an outdoor sporting goods store. There will also be The Escape Game, an escape-room concept that calls for teamwork.

Recently, Braves Development announced that it was building an Aloft Hotel at The Battery Atlanta, with a projected 2020 opening. Also on the horizon for the project’s final phase will be a Silverspot Cinema, specialty market Savi Provisions and coffee roaster Jittery Joe’s.
