This amazing time-lapse video shows how far Mercedes-Benz Stadium has come

It's starting to come together, Pepper.

Earlier this week we learned that Atlanta United's future home, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, is still on track for a June 1st, 2017 opening after a three-month initial delay. Today the people who control the website of the stadium released this really cool time-lapse video of the stadium's progress so far.

Ground broke on this massive project in May of 2014. Just under 2 years have passed and tremendous progress has been made. We've already seen on delay in the projected opening date, but once this amazing piece of architecture is completed, the wait will be completely worth it.

It's pretty amazing to see a patch of dirt turned into one of the most expensive and extravagant stadia in the entire world. Only one more year to go until Atlanta United and the Falcons are doing their work in front of massive crowds of fans. It can't come soon enough and this video is just making the wait seem longer.
