The Atlanta Braves released renderings of their new stadium they plan to move to in time for the 2017 season.

Renderings released by homeofthebraves.com show the new stadium's capacity set at 41,000, with a 90-foot roof and air conditioning on every level.

The images also show the ballpark with multiple decks and a canopy area for fans. The stadium, which will cost $400 million, will be located in the suburbs of Atlanta, in Cobb County because of its proximity to a freeway and the potential for other development.

Turner Field has been the home of the team since the 1997 season, having been originally built as Centennial Olympic Stadium for the Summer Olympics in 1996.

After the Braves depart Turner Field, Georgia State said they want to use the facility for its football team.

“This is a very early look at how our vision is shaping up and, even though we are still months away from final plans and drawings, we are very pleased with the progress,” said Braves president John Schuerholz said in a news release. “The renderings represent the sense of place we intend to create 365 days a year in addition to a world-class ballpark.”
