This is a little section of what looks like a finished foundation. It will be approximately below the Pro Shop (I think).
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.
Twins in HD on the big board
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
The view from my seats in Section 237 (The Trap), Row 1 (can't see much of center field without standing up...)
The circulation ramp on Fifth Street is shaping up very quickly.
These two sections are within a few feet of one another.

Heaters over standing room (the backs of the retired number circles visible above)
10 years ago, Bruce Lambrecht looked at this land and thought, "Why NOT a ballpark here?" It took a long time before anybody else saw the same potential.

This is from inside the B ramp, where an entrance to the plaza will one day be

Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
Gate 29 Carew (note the walkway above open to the street where you can shout down at your lost friends to tell them where to meet you)
Ben took this picture of me (carrying my mostly useless camera) and Twins rep Chris Iles down by the admin building
Section 101, Row 34
This view, from the Minnekahda building (or possibly a predecessor), looks toward the right field corner. The City Market, at left, occupied the land where the B ramp and Target Plaza now stand (over I-394). And the Overlook now juts out just a little beyond where that driveway enters the railyard.
Name that ballpark
A detail from the above image shows that the section signage is now in place
This is what will count as a knothole (actually, it's a gated entrance)
Skywalk over Seventh, looking back toward the parking ramp
No, that's not Kent Hrbek. It's catcher Glenn Borgmann.
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
The Guthrie Theater's Wurtele Thrust Stage seating
The top of a warehouse visible beyond a parking ramp.
He'll always be a fan favorite, but did you know that he's making $18.5 million this year? The Twins' entire outfield today, combined, makes $7.45 million.
This view looks through the opening in the fence where the crosswalk will be.
