The Atlanta Braves selected Kansas City, Mo.-based Populous as the firm to design its proposed $672 million stadium in Cobb County.

Populous is a global architectural firm that has designed such stadiums as Marlins Park Miami in 2012, a 37,000-seat ballpark with a retractable roof that serves as the home of the Miami Marlins; Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis, a 40,000-seat ballpark built in 2010 costing $545 million; and Yankee Stadium in New York in 2009, according to its web site.

County Chairman Tim Lee said he had already given the Braves approval to hire Populous.

Lee said Populous was not designing the $400 million mixed-use development the Braves plan to build around the stadium.
