What happens to Turner Field once the Braves baseball franchise leaves is a hot topic in Atlanta. Will that land become a casino? Will a new stadium replace Turner Field? Or will the area be developed for retail, dining and condominiums like Atlantic Station?
One thing that’s for sure is that the communities surrounding Turner Field can’t afford another development project that benefits a few well-connected folks while further cutting off and displacing long-term residents who have lived near the field since before the area was ripe for such a land grab.
