The Legacy of Henry “Hank” Aarons Will Live on at The Henry

A new mixed-use project projected to open at the end of 2026 or in early 2027 is taking shape in Cobb County, Atlanta, and it has a pretty special story behind it. The Henry, named after major league baseball legend and former Atlanta Braves player Henry “Hank” Aarons, will introduce 650 apartments, 54 condos and a 250-key hotel near The Battery and Truist Park.

This new premium housing development represents a partnership between Braves Development Company, Goldenrod Companies and SK Commercial Realty. Holland Basham Architects are in on the deal, and our team at Calloway Title got to hit the title work out of the park (see what we did there) for all parties to the transaction!

Honoring a Legend

Henry “Hank” Aaron’s story is about much more than baseball. There’s no denying that he was a phenomenal athlete. He was a consistent player on the plate and the field over his 25-year career in the MLB. Atlanta Braves fans celebrated his greatness at every game, but in 1973, he was thrust into the national spotlight for breaking one of the sport’s most cherished records: Babe Ruth’s mark of 714 home runs. Hank ended his career with 755 home runs.

Yet, “Hank Aaron’s consistent excellence on the field was overshadowed by the dignity and grace he exemplified throughout his career,” states this article. Hank was widely admired for his character. Shortly after his record-breaking home run, Georgia congressman Andrew Young declared, “Through his long career, Hank Aaron has been a model of humility, dignity, and quiet competence. He did not seek the adoration accorded to other national athletic heroes, yet he has now earned it.” Hank was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1982.

Expanding a Community

Plans for The Henry are well underway, and once completed, the development is expected to play a critical role in the area’s growing entertainment district. In this article, Holland Basham Architects explain, “Amenities will include a gym, a pool, a grilling station, a dog park, bike storage, a coffee shop, a rooftop bar and lounge with views of the Atlanta skyline, and meeting and work-from-home spaces.” It is also in close proximity to Truist Park and The Battery. With the introduction of pedestrian bridges from the hotel to the stadium, baseball enthusiasts and guests will have easy access to games.

Calloway Title’s Role in the Story

Not only did our team recently complete the title work and help close the deal on The Henry, but we also helped close the deal on Truist Park Stadium, meaning those pedestrian bridges aren’t the only thing connecting these two projects. They’re also linked by Calloway Title, which brings us great pride as Atlanta locals and loyal Braves fans.

What we love about The Henry and Truist Park is that they’re creating a unified space that makes it easier for people to come together and connect over their shared interests and love of community. If you have a commercial project that will help expand or enrich your community, we’d love to work with you on it! Calloway Title can handle your complex deals in any state. Visit to work with us!
