Here's where I was when the alarm went off, and though the siren wasn't terribly loud, at least one guy is plugging his ears.
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.
The equivalent spot on the model.
A portrait of the 573 Club.
Steel going up fast.
If you arrive by bus, your first glimpse of the park will be the scoreboard's profile. (Viewed from the bus station in the B ramp.)
I still counted 11 flag poles...
Looking across the top of the B parking ramp. Notice that signage will block any attempts at seeing the game from up there. Also take note of the glassed in area which is part club and part office space for the Ballpark Authority.
An escalator was going in the day I was there.
The seating bowl of Citizens Bank Park overlaid on the Target Field site
Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.

Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).
This is the view from where the plaza will connect to the walkway on the west side of Target Center. This presumably aids traffic flow back to the A ramp, and perhaps to the skyway connection (though the doors to the skyway right there are typically exit only).

Franchise history before Minnesota. (Click to enlarge.)
The entrance at Gate 3.
The parking bay structure is now clearly visible
Work on the pavilion in center.
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
Clyde Doeppner proudly displays colored bricks he scavenged from the Met during its demolition. These are the colors in question!
Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
I know these are giants bats with hops growing inside, but... Hmm...
That's Tony Oliva checking out ballpark construction from the roof of Target Center.
