About SunTrust Park

SunTrust Park is designed with the fans in mind. With 41,500 seats, the more intimate configuration maximizes sightlines and elevations, placing a higher percentage of seats closer to the field than any other ballpark in Major League Baseball. A 90ft roof – three times the size of the current roof – and air conditioning on every level will ensure that a majority of fans are cool on hot summer days. Youngsters will be able to run the bases on a mini-field kids’ zone adjacent to the ballpark.

The popular Chop House will not only overlook the action on the field but the action on the plaza outside the front gate.

The existing topography of the property has been carefully integrated into the design. The intimacy of the ballpark will be accentuated by building the facility into the gently sloping terrain. Trees will separate parking sections that cascade down the slopes. Because of the way the ballpark nestles into the hillside, fans will arrive on the home plate side of the park on the mezzanine level, while entering the outfield side (off the plaza) at field level.

The plaza will be a grand central gathering space for fans, families, residents and visitors. It will serve as a hub of activity, with new and fresh events throughout the year. Residents and visitors might catch a concert, movie or a craft beer in the entertainment venues neighboring the plaza, or enjoy a weekend street festival. On game days, members of Braves Country will gather in the plaza, surrounded by iconic team monuments and championship flags.
