The new $1.2-billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, shown under construction in August next door to the existing stadium, involves almost $208 million in federal tax-exempt bonds— subsidy not counted in the Brookings study because the bonds were not issued by the end of 2014. The project is estimated to have a $400-million statewide economic impact, and already has helped the city attract the 2019 Super Bowl.
