The Atlanta Falcons and Georgia World Congress Center will soon send out a request for proposals to potential designers of a new football stadium.
Falcons and GWCC officials expect to issue the RFP by the end of November for national and international architects to provide conceptual designs for a new open-air football stadium. The new stadium would be located north of the Falcons existing home — the Georgia Dome — at the intersection of Northside Drive and Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard.
That would definitely help to extend the "nice" part of downtown farther towards that area. Plus I think having the dome right there would really make the aquarium / COP / CFHoF district better.
As it is now the Dome is kind of separated from the rest of downtown. But I wonder what they'd do with the existing GA Dome, tear it down?
