Kansas City firm top choice to design stadium for Falcons

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The Kansas City-based architecture firm that designed the new stadium shared by the New York Jets and Giants is the top choice to design a new stadium for the Atlanta Falcons.

Documents from the state of Georgia name 360 Architecture as the "apparent awardee" of the lead architect job. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/ZuY82F) that the designation means negotiations on a fee and other terms will begin immediately.

If a deal can't be reached, the Falcons and the Georgia World Congress Center would turn to their next choice, which was not named.

360 Architecture was among five finalists for the project. One of its highest profile projects is 82,000-seat MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The stadium is planned for a site near the existing Georgia Dome in downtown Atlanta.
