Snow-blowing the field
The right field overhang as seen from Seventh Street (with dude)
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
They help create a psychological safe area along the plaza edge, and help you forget that cars are zipping by directly beneath you.
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.
"Hey, Ma, it says here we go in at gate 34. Must be all the way around on the other side!" Seriously, though, this is a really inspired idea.

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).
The Northstar circulation building is starting to take shape.
The finished product. Note that, at the very bottom of this image, you can just barely see the tops of the windows which look into the Champion's Club. (Home Plate Box)
Row indicators are spray-painted with stencils over rust and peeling paint.
A recent view of the Bud deck in progress
Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.
Today's match-up (click to enlarge)
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
Here's where I was when the alarm went off, and though the siren wasn't terribly loud, at least one guy is plugging his ears.
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
The Lincoln Saltdogs (and a promotional Nerd)
A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??
Section 139, Row 8
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)
Look at all those flag poles! But wouldn't the one from Met Stadium look great just inside the gates in the middle of that entrance plaza?
Speakers spaced evenly among the lights
Catwalks provide access to the View Level seats (from the Ballpark Authority July update)
The canopy as viewed through the outfield stands. The lighting approach, despite what you may have heard, is actually very traditional.
Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.
Somebody asked how long it would be before the tarp had a sponsor. Well, not very long.
7:52 PM It's nearing peak, and covering the stands behind third base.
The Seventh Street facade
