An arch under construction.
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
Memorabilia on display in the Metropolitan Club
This was from January 19, 2007, when it looked like wonderful things might never happen here.

How many times did we water down our field as kids? More times than we played games, that's for sure!

Here's what they do in April at Comerica Park
Final pieces arrive
Thanks for all the hard work out there, Cold Safety-Line Dudes. (I'm glad that my job does not require safety lines...)
Original outfield configuration
The heretofore unseen north facade (click to enlarge). Does it look like a ballpark? And what's with the bamboo?
Gate 6 is quite large
Some details are visible here, like the back of an escalator.

Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.
A slightly different elevation drawing, again viewed from Fifth Street, with some labels. (Click to enlarge.)
