Turner Field, Atlanta, GA (June, 2012)

 
Built for the Olympics in 1996 the field still looks great and has lots of corporate presence from so many of the companies headquartered in Atlanta (Delta, Coca-Cola, Chick-fil-A, Napa Auto Parts, and the list goes on).  Check out a panoramic from this vantage point.

Seating capacity is around 50,000 and the stadium cost $209M when it was built.  It replaces the old Fulton County Stadium, a municipal "donut" style stadium known as "The Launching Pad" which was immediately north of the current facility.

Of note, or at least cool to me, is the stadium's address--755 Hank Aaron Drive.  A nice tribute to his record!  For more info on the stadium check out the Braves' site.
