Summary Sentence: Life After the Braves: Redeveloping Turner Field

Full Summary: The Atlanta Braves are moving out of Turner Field, and into the suburbs. But an aging ballpark isn't the only thing the team is leaving behind. The neighborhood around Turner Field has seen promises for development come and go, with little to show for it. Now, with the Braves' departure, there is new hope, along with new questions, about the area's future.
