Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
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.

Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
Viewed from up Sixth Street, the tip of the canopy looks like the claw of some gigantic crustacean!
The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.

This looks up Fifth Street (LRT train visible in the distance). This bridge is also being partially rebuilt (see next photo).
5:45 PM, section 327, row 9, sitting: shade.
A whole bunch of guys working on something.
Noah is checking out the ample leg room and truly exemplary sight lines.
This may look like just some guy (perhaps a spy) headed for the train. But it's actually the Northstar engineer!
Mound from the other side
Hey! That limestone looks familiar!
Look at all that blank space. Canvas! (What should go on those walls? A giant schedule perhaps?)
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
The LRT station, sitting in a brand new urban canyon, takes shape.
