Sky through steel.
Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
Purple flowers above Second Avenue
The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
Inexplicable bright yellow baseball amid the trees.
The plaza as seen from the B ramp.

Viewed from up Sixth Street (that's Target Center on the left), you can get an idea of how the connection is currently planned. As it stands now, the plaza will extend to that support pillar, from which a stairway will empty to the sidewalk below. If they get their wish, additional support structures will provide a walkway along Target Center which will gradually (without stairs) meet the sidewalk somewhere up near First Avenue.
The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.
I never think of Ron Jackson at all.
...but you can get a feel for what it will be like.
Stay warm while buying tickets.
Train. (What is it about baseball and trains?)
Steps going up at Gate 29/Carew
A seating bowl comes into focus. Note that the netting has been installed on the foul pole. (Field Box)
The connection from the corner of Seventh Street and Second Avenue. You can now see where the little grassy area and franchise history board will be (the triangular area in the foreground).
Dancing for the cameras
Home Run Porch Terrace (bottom) and View (top) as seen from the top of the B ramp
This appears to be the floor to the home dugout!
Here's the current overview from the south side of the B ramp (from which the banner at the top of this page was culled).
In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
Glass going in over the Oliva gate.

I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
Gate 29 Carew
Wayfinding within the B ramp is still a work in progress.
The canopy as viewed through the outfield stands. The lighting approach, despite what you may have heard, is actually very traditional.
