The glass area seen here is one of the warm-up areas.
This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
LRT station has appeared.
The limestone theme is apparently carried to the area behind home plate. This will look great -- and distinctive -- on TV. But watch out for those foul balls!
The view from the corner of Ford Centre. (Feel free to tie up your boats here.)
Knothole non-view #2
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)
Concept drawing of Coomer gate (click to enlarge)
For reference, this is that same area as viewed from the seat locator.
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
Complicated pedestrian crossing
Do you know who did this drawing? If so, please tell me so I can give them proper credit.
Ready for action.
I took this because of the view reflected in the store windows. (The store is cool too.)
This is also the promenade, where the first indications of the final texture of the walkway can be seen. This layer of concrete is going on top of gravel (as has been done over on the plaza).
A slightly different elevation drawing, again viewed from Fifth Street, with some labels. (Click to enlarge.)
Air conditioning condensation on the floor.
Approach in the A ramp to the skywalk over Seventh
I'm too short to see over that wall. How about a little platform or something?
The knothole (sans view of anything interesting)
