Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
This view, also from the same warehouse roof, shows the newly-rebuilt viaduct on North Seventh Street.

This is the area above the pro shop, with some new support structure
Life in the shadows
Hot dawgs! Getcher hot dawgs!
Also warming things up are these planters.
End of the line.
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
In March, we were still only imagining baseball through those windows.
Thanks for all the hard work out there, Cold Safety-Line Dudes. (I'm glad that my job does not require safety lines...)
The entrance at Gate 3.

Looking across the plaza toward the main ticket area.
Ben took this picture of me (carrying my mostly useless camera) and Twins rep Chris Iles down by the admin building
Supports viewed from beneath. These seats will be just a few feet from the outside edge of the building!

B ramp glimpse
Seventh Street circulation
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.
Secret entrance exposed!
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
The parking bay structure is now clearly visible
A sidewalk has sprouted between the HERC and the LRT tracks!
Detail on the main gate, with Target Field sign
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.
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
The glare problem.
This is a background image extracted from one of the blueprint pages. It's essentially a schematic of the park (Terrace Level). In it you can see the shape of the various seating areas (to a certain extent).
Row indicators are spray-painted with stencils over rust and peeling paint.
I know you've seen this, but I can't get enough of it.
Concrete molds are being removed!
