Pogin on Almanac

March 2, 2007 8:00 PM

Here's the five-minute clip of Rich Pogin on Almanac tonight (download here):

Nothing really new here. But his frequent references to Hines are something of a curiosity...

UPDATE March 20: The video is off-line temporarily due to bandwidth concerns.

I just wanted to say that I really enjoy the evolving (or devolving?) header graphic on the site.

"You talk about the magic, the aura, but what really makes a stadium is the fans. Concrete doesn't talk back to you. Chairs don't talk back to you. It's the people who are there, day in, day out, that makes the place magic."

– Bernie Williams

Roll-up metal doors visible at right.

Looking down Sixth Avenue toward the plaza



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!



TF: template-based?



Because of the scale, it's sometimes hard to realize that there are actual guys down there doing the tough work! Here they are getting ready to pour a footing.






This looks from the base of the stairs, behind the big pillars, toward the street.






The back row of seats in straight-away center. Note that, beyond those seats, you can see the planters (for flowers) on the front of the Left Field Bleachers.(Batters Eye)



The right field overhang is in place, and the first base stands are starting to go in.









Viewed from the A ramp.



A trailer village has sprung up to the south.



The main concourse.






Work beneath the scoreboard



Topped off.



Knothole non-view #1



Trampled, repaired, and re-trampled grass






Here's a closer look.



The art panels on the Fifth Street facade as viewed from the top of the Minnekahda building.









Saturday afternoon, KMSP-HD 720P






For reference, here's that spot on the model.









Legends Club seats in context (above the main concourse, below the suite level)



Discovered on the upper concourse!



You'll be able to park here for a quick stop at the Pro Shop or ticket window.



In the foreground you can see the supports for the plaza as it will meet the corner of North Seventh Street and Third Avenue North.



A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)









Bike parking available along Second Avenue



Looking through it, you can see the outfield pavilion (upper deck at least).






Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.



Notice the temporary railing extensions






This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
