Stepping inside the circulation building
Inside the Metropolitan Club. Classic photo of a youthful Bob Casey at far right. (Photo by Tyler Wycoff)
The Puckett Atrium
The HERC promenade side.
LRT station has appeared.
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
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)
CBP: retro in facade only
This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse. Compared to the ballpark construction, this looks kind of puny. But the work just to get the trains to come has been positively Herculean. Future generations will look back at this with awe.
Um, I think that guy is out.
Hey! That limestone looks familiar!
Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
A spot that's always full!
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Impractical, expensive, undeniably cool (Angel Stadium, source LP)
"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.
Steel going up fast.
Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.
This is a great spot for casually watching the game.
Footings for the Seventh Street walkway from the A ramp.
Do you think somebody's already cooking hot dogs out there?
Can you name that field? (Braemer Park, Edina)
Handshakes all around (there's gonna be a lot of that over the next few weeks)
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
