If you can't wait until 2017 to get a look at the Atlanta Braves' new stadium in Cobb County, Ga., today's your lucky day.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves -- who are leaving downtown Atlanta after the 2016 season -- plan a $400 million entertainment area in conjunction with their new stadium. "The district, which is still in early planning phases, would feature a street lined with retail, restaurants and bars leading up to the stadium. A ring of trees and greenspace would surround the stadium and entertainment district, and a small amphitheater would be at the center of the development," the newspaper reported. The stadium itself is scheduled to cost nearly $700 million.
