College Football Hall of Fame takes 2.7-acre space Downtown

But why does it have to resemble our Home Depot looking Aquarium?

Organizers of the project are said to announce today that the long awaited College Football Hall of Fame will be built on the parking lot facing Marietta Street and diagonal from Centennial Olympic Park, according to Leon Stafford with the AJC.

Stafford spoke with Gary Stokan, president and chief executive officer of Atlanta Hall Management, who said the Congress Center site allows for a 225-space parking lot and low-rise building, which industry leaders say works better than a multi-level facility.

Like the Georgia Aquarium, the building's interior will have a spoke-and-wheel design that lets visitors decide what part they want to visit after entering a central common area, Stokan said.

The exterior will resemble a football, including its texture, he said. Leon Stafford with the AJC has the full story.

Here are some additional renderings:

  1. Caleb- do you know the architect who will be handling this project?
    ABC has a newer rendering that reflects the football shape.

  2. TVSA is the architect. The same ones that designed the aquarium. I don't mind the design but nothing special. I do think that making the building look like a football is too literal and a bit lame. At least it'll replace a parking lot. HURRAY!

  3. Those renderings are based off the old design. The design of the building has been changed and, as far as the exterior goes, looks nothing like what is shown.
