EDGE CENTER FOR STUDENT-ATHLETE LEADERSHIP (RECONSTRUCTION)

Edge Rendering

Most collegiate athletics programs emphasize Teamwork, Character, and Excellence, but - true to the Institute's DNA - Georgia Tech Athletics adds a fourth value to the mix: Innovation.

Nowhere is this value more important than in Georgia Tech Athletics' main facility - the Edge Center. GT Athletics has identified innovative enhancements and critical expansions that will make this facility more attractive, energetic, flexible, and functional - with the goal of better serving student-athletes, staff, and fans year round, not just during football season.

Create an Athletics Hub

This facility will become a focal point for creating and celebrating a dynamic student-athlete culture. It will be home base for coaching and GT Athletics operations, along with a one-stop-shop for key student-athlete services such as sports medicine, dining & nutrition, academics, and the Total Person Program.

Enhance the Image of GT Athletics

This facility will stand as a branding and communications asset for a range of audiences - anchoring recruitment efforts by showcasing the Institute's commitment to student-athlete success; offering interactive opportunities for pedestrians, non student-athletes, and fans; and creating excitement for GT Athletics through a combination of aesthetics, energy, and engagement.

Add Necessary Program Areas

The addition of almost 25,000 square feet of space will allow GT Athletics to grow existing functions; accommodate more teams and staff; and offer new and much-needed program areas to support student-athletes in everything from entrepreneurship to research to collaboration.

Better Leverage Location

This facility should be a critical campus fixture not only for student-athletes and staff, but for passersby and fans. Street level retail will invite people in, and a Rooftop Plaza will offer unique views of Downtown, Midtown, & Bobby Dodd Stadium. Renovations will also alleviate current service and access issues off Techwood Drive. 

Baseball Stadium - Phase II Renovations

Phase I renovations to the Russ Chandler Stadium - upgrading the locker room, team lounges, training room, & study room - have been vital to helping Georgia Tech Baseball recruit and support players.

Phase II renovations - a new grand entrance/atrium to "tell our story", improved indoor practice area, team theater, alumni locker room, club seating, and video scoreboard - will continue to support student-athletes as well as bring much-needed enhancement to the fan experience.

Basketball Locker Rooms & Team Area

The team areas for both men's & women's basketball are in critical need of upgrades including new lockers, modernized audio/visual capabilities, refreshed graphics, and improved utilities.

These enhancements and improvements will ensure that current student-athletes and staff have access to modern conveniences and capabilities, and they will also help showcase Georgia Tech's strong commitment to its basketball programs to potential recruits.
