ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have announced the group of developers that will build a multimillion dollar, mixed-use site near the team’s new suburban ballpark.

Braves officials announced Wednesday that Fuqua Development, Pope and Land, and Pollack Shores Real Estate Group have been chosen to develop the 74-acre site.

Officials say Fuqua Development will work on the retail portion of the project, Pope and Land will develop office space, and Pollack Shores Real Estate Group will work on the site’s residential component. Construction is expected to begin later this year.

Atlanta Braves CEO Terry McGuirk said in a statement that partnering with three Atlanta-based companies on the suburban mixed-use site reflects the team’s “local roots and global brand.”

The Braves are expecting to begin playing in the new stadium in 2017.
