Carter, a real estate investment, development and advisory firms, will serve as program manager for the development of Valhalla, the new athletic stadium at Berry College in Mount Berry, Ga. As the latest addition to the world’s largest campus of 27,000 acres, the project will be built south of Maple Drive, adjacent to Berry’s main entrance.
The new facility will host the school’s football, lacrosse, and track and field programs. Construction for Valhalla, which will feature a synthetic track encircling a synthetic turf field, is scheduled to begin in fall 2014 and be completed by mid-summer 2015.
“We are proud of our involvement in the design and development of Valhalla, which we believe will provide Berry College with an athletic facility befitting of the school’s rich heritage and tradition of excellence,” said Todd Bradford, Carter Vice President. “The addition of top-level intercollegiate athletic programs, including NCAA football, marks an exciting time of growth for the Viking community.”
The college changed the original location of the stadium after a bald eagle couple chose to build their nest in a tall pine tree just off the major parking lot near the location.
Grandstands at Valhalla will seat about 1,800. Guests will have access to gameday parking in the existing lots at the Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center.
