Opens the door for a soccer-specific stadium for our new MLS franchise.
I'd be pissed too if my home playoff games didn't sell out. It's ridiculous that there are still tickets available for two games scheduled for after work. Most "Braves Fans" are spoiled. Ill be there like I have been for every series since I moved here in 2002.
Another thing. The Braves are "mad" for not marketing more to intown audiences. Their focus has always been on the suburban market and they are the fans that whine about the drive and the parking. Meanwhile there are baseball fans all over the city and many like the Braves. Even the hipster kids think the Braves are cool and many are surprising knowledgeable about Baseball. Most of intown bars show Braves games if they have TVs (even hipster bars--just go check out places like the EARL for example). All I'm saying is that there is a lot of potential to sell tickets and build a larger following that is over looked and a shame.
Mark my words that many in this same Demo are going to be all over MLS when is comes to town and the Braves's opportunity will be missed because the seasons directly overlap. Then the Braves will be really pissed or maybe they will be oblivious just like now.
What two mile segment?
Come to Emory and drive on the N. Decatur road diet. It's been studied by professional engineers and has improved motorist throughput.
@justindustin: You can do both. There will be parking onsite for whatever is developed. You can have paid parking as a part of the development.
Why not develop above these stations? I've never understood why a MARTA station needed such a large above ground footprint.
Will everyone who is concerned about this please join me and contact the Beltline to complain about the tables and chairs on the trail? http://beltline.org/contact/
