CBP: retro in facade only
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.

One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
Work on the pavilion in center.

Can you name that field? (Braemer Park, Edina)
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
The Fifth Street side is pretty busy. There's a small street entrance to the B ramp, then ticket booths and an entrance gate, a rare exterior section not covered in limestone, the wooden screen covering the circulation ramps, the administration building, and finally (just out of view) the interface with Northstar. All of that sits behind the LRT action. How pedestrians will interact with this side of the park is a great mystery to me. You know that Metro Transit won't be letting them cross the tracks anywhere but at either end of the block...
Look at all that blank space. Canvas! (What should go on those walls? A giant schedule perhaps?)
Speakers spaced evenly among the lights
The service entrance area in left-center, now with bench seating
The saddest event
There must be millions of details needing tending
Entrance to the Champions Club
Compare this picture, from the open house in March, with the one above and you'll see that some furniture reconfiguration has taken place.
A close-up of the rooftop party deck.
Nearby, workers are finishing a support column. The guy at the bottom is using some sort of personal dirt mover (inset). Very cool.
This looks up Fifth Street (LRT train visible in the distance). This bridge is also being partially rebuilt (see next photo).

Looking from First Avenue toward the ballpark (over the top of a construction barricade)
TCF Bank Stadium. Not for baseball, but still pretty cool to watch being built.
Thanks for all the hard work out there, Cold Safety-Line Dudes. (I'm glad that my job does not require safety lines...)
These stairs will meet the skyway.
This shows the area where the Northstar platform connects with the ballpark (that translucent oval). Above that is the area which will house the Twins operations offices.
The rules were clearly posted next to this new entry point on the Seventh Street side. I have no problem with the rules!
Freight trains run in very close proximity (Jerry Bell was standing at my left elbow when I took this picture)
...but you can get a feel for what it will be like.
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.
The equivalent spot on the model.

A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)
The entrance at Gate 3.
Better them than me
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!)
A very early vision for TF's main concourse
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.
The images on that wall appear to be of great Twins moments in history.
