Steel going up fast.
This is the view from the Seventh Street circulation ramp. It will eventually be covered by the wood louvers.
Pawlenty makes it official!
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
Home Plate Terrace -- really great seats; maybe my personal, budget-based favorite
Bruce Lambrecht on the roof of the Minikahda building.
Reasonable (if not overly generous) leg room
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!
Plaza overview from the A ramp
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
These guys were there, but it wasn't any of you, right?
A slightly different angle, and you can see some of the structural elements.
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".

The scoreboard also towers over the LRT tracks, which now are functional (though not open) all the way to the park -- and beyond!

From about two blocks away you can finally get an idea of what it looks like. Just to my left (but out of view) was a valet parking stand where a limo was idling.
A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
That group was working on something very carefully, but I couldn't tell just what it was.
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
