Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??
The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
Original outfield configuration
No, that's not Kent Hrbek. It's catcher Glenn Borgmann.
The Target Center rooftop patio. Hardly glamorous, but a great view of the ballpark.

Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
At the corner of the Pro Shop.

The big glove will go on that circle. Note the gap between the plaza and the ramp. That's 394 you can see through there.
Waiting for a train. Reading on the promenade. How urbane.
An arch under construction.
This concourse, the uppermost, was built on top of the now-hidden old concourse during the 70s renovation.
Supports viewed from beneath. These seats will be just a few feet from the outside edge of the building!
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
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 renderings and concept model differ here. MOJO thinks this is the perfect place for a party deck. Dave St. Peter seemed to agree!

Three weeks ago this was a patch of scruffy trees. Now it's a patio. In case you were wondering, that's where I've been...
You have to wonder just what happened here. Will it remain forever embedded in cement?

This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
The main concourse is a very busy place at all times.
The angle on the main scoreboard from the Batter's Eye is surprisingly good -- acceptable, at least.

Special guests in the trees!
Do you know who did this drawing? If so, please tell me so I can give them proper credit.
Walkway construction is progressing
An escalator was going in the day I was there.
Artist at (very painstaking) work
A spectacular golden hour
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
