A view of construction from the B ramp. This looks toward Seventh Street, over what will be Gate 34 (the main entrance).
The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
There are no caddies in baseball.
Dave St. Peter introducing the first physical models of the ballpark in June 2007
It looks like the Target-themed signage has spilled out to the surrounding area (this was taken from the entryway to the B ramp from Third -- the 394 entrance ramp tunnel)
Can you name that field? (Braemer Park, Edina)
Legends Club seats feature in-seat service
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)
Pawlenty makes it official!
North Loop Deli
Work in progress to improve the streetscape on Second Avenue
This will be a bar/restaurant.
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
Best view available from the "B" ramp.
The outline of an infield has appeared on the asphalt in advance of the ground-breaking on Thursday night.
View from the Overlook
The knothole (sans view of anything interesting)
I love this view of the Basilica.
Entrance to the Champions Club
Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
Building the canopy is a spectacular sight.
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
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!
Now, THIS is just some guy who appears to be hanging out on the LRT tracks talking to himself.
Uh oh. Schizophrenia.
That's part of the wind veil, waiting in the B ramp for installation
One more time from the third base side.
The scoreboard terminates the view on Fifth Street as seen from Hennepin
