After nine years of planning, and more than three years of construction, this dynamic, fan-centric modern marvel is almost ready.

It features a halo board, videos wrapping around the roof line at nearly six stories tall.

It has more square footage than The White House.

And perhaps the most unique part of the stadium -- the window to the city.

You can watch a game or concert, then turn around and see the breathtaking skyline of downtown Atlanta.

And no need to wolf down food outside the stadium before the event.

Because food inside is good and it's cheap.

The new stadium cost one and a half billion dollars to build.

It's detailed retractable roof still isn't fully operational yet.

The Falcons' first regular season home game at Mercedes-Benz is September 17th against Green Bay.
