The College Football Hall of Fame is located in front of the intersection between Park Ave West NW and Marietta St.  In front of these streets lies the entrance and front building of the museum. The surrounding area smelled of industrial fumes from car exhaust to concrete and new plastic. Noise level was filled with car horns, engine pistons rotating and pedestrians walking; the clanking noise created from hard bottom shoes hitting concrete sidewalks. This new building  opened in August 2014 (College Football Hall of Fame). It opened with the help of Coca Cola, AT&T, KIA, and Chick Fil A as founding partners. It currently draws numerous people from around the US to visit (Atlanta Fan Attraction).

The left wing of the building is shaped as a football in kick off position where the pointed ends face upwards towards the sky. The pointed ends of the egg shaped building are also cut off horizontally. This section of the building is covered with brown flat water resistant panels. Each Panel is 6 Feet tall and is slightly curved in order to create the scale of a giant football. The words “College Football Hall of Fame” is written on the upper section of the wing in white, balanced by 5 beams that interconnect to hold the letters up. Below these letters a square extensions extends from the building with 4 glass panels built in that allow sunlight to pass through.
