Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)
Wind veil framing
Having fun. Installing limestone. Good gig.
Bench seating just off the plaza
At one point, we thought these windows might represent one of the so-called knotholes. But nope. Nothing to see here. (Nearest I can tell, there will be no view of the playing field whatsoever from the Seventh Street sidewalk.)

Main concourse, looking toward the admin building.
Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence.
