New Concept Drawing - No Roof
I would put on this face.
Where you are, and where you can go.
Detail on the main gate, with Target Field sign
Double plays will be turned here.
Stairs wrap around the skyway escape tower. A very nice finishing touch.

Ready for action.
The finished product.
Looking out from under Gate 34
There's the opening through which the groundskeeping equipment will emerge (and disappear).
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.
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
This isn't a very good picture, but it is the current view of the inside of a suite.
Main concourse, looking south toward the area behind home plate.
That is pretty close... (Grandstand)
The service entrance area in left-center, now with bench seating
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...

Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
Parking ramp knothole
Note reflected sunset (7:30 PM). Could be a worry...
A great view from the balcony outside the Metropolitan Club
A mysterious smile from within a very deep planter!
Perched welder on the top of the canopy.
This will be a bar/restaurant.
