Apparently Arthur Blank wants one:
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Wednesday that by 2015 or 2016, “I would suspect we will have a new stadium.”
Blank made the comment at a breakfast speech hosted by Atlanta Jewish Life magazine.
It’s all about the money:
Blank said the Georgia Dome agreement with the state was probably a good one when it was built, but that it is now less favorable than deals for teams in other cities. Blank said 23 new stadiums have been built since 1992.
I imagine Blank would want it to stay downtown, since after he purchased the Georgia Force indoor team, he moved them back to Phillips Arena and out of the Gwinnett Arena. However, a new football stadium would be very expensive.
I wonder what Mayor Franklin thinks about this?
