Falcons Get GWCCA Approval For "Pantheon" Stadium Design Concept
Published June 18, 2013
APPROVED UNANIMOUSLY: WSB-ABC's Dave Huddleston reported the stadium design concept was "approved unanimously without discussion by the six-person Stadium Development Committee." In addition to the retractable roof, the stadium would include 180 luxury boxes and 7,500 club-level seats, more of both than at the Georgia Dome. All of the designs were from the southside location, but Georgia World Congress Center Chair Frank Poe said the design could be altered if the location changed. Poe: "It's a design that can work really in either location, so we're very excited about the design that we've seen." Poe added that the "petition drive to force the city to have voters' input" on spending $200M of public money on the project "hasn't slowed down their progress so far and doesn't anticipate that it will" (WSB-ABC, 6/18).
