Brasfield & Gorrie Tops Out Three Ballpark Center
August 24, 2020
Three Ballpark Center recently reached its full height, an important milestone in the project’s construction. Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor of the project, located in The Battery Atlanta.
“This is another historic day for the Atlanta Braves and our Braves Development Company. Our grand vision to create a year-round destination continues to grow and exceed expectations with the topping out of Three Ballpark Center,” said Mike Plant, president and CEO of Braves Development Company. “This special day is occurring months earlier than our schedule, which is a testament to the level of excellence Brasfield & Gorrie brings to the project every day. When the office building, lab/conference center and test tower are completed next summer, this will be an iconic landmark for Cobb County.”
The Braves Development Company is developing the 11-story, 306,000 sq ft high-rise core and shell office building. The structure sits atop six levels of parking, and it is seeking LEED® certification. Brasfield & Gorrie self-performed the concrete structure.
“Three Ballpark Center is a valuable addition to Cobb County and The Battery Atlanta,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Matthew McClure. “This project will bring many new jobs to the area, and we are honored to contribute to the area’s ongoing economic development.”
“We are honored to partner with the Atlanta Braves once again on this exciting project, and we share their commitment to this area’s development,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Regional President Chris Britton.
thyssenkrupp Elevator North America will occupy four floors. Brasfield & Gorrie will also complete this build-out, which will pursue LEED Gold certification. Work on the build-out is expected to begin in 2021.
Brasfield & Gorrie has constructed several key projects in and near The Battery Atlanta, including its own office. The general contractor was managing partner of American Builders 2017, a joint venture that built the Atlanta Braves’ Truist Park. Brasfield & Gorrie also constructed the Omni Hotel at The Battery Atlanta as well as the structure of One Ballpark Center, a nine-story, 250,000 sq ft office building that serves as Comcast’s Central Division headquarters. It is also building the thyssenkrupp Elevator Test Tower and Innovation and Qualification Center, which are adjacent to Three Ballpark Center. Brasfield & Gorrie is collaborating with architect NELSON and program manager JLL for this project, which is scheduled to complete in the first quarter of 2021.
