Main concourse, looking south toward the area behind home plate.
Hot dawgs! Getcher hot dawgs!
This is the back of the Cisco Field scoreboard, showing video to folks out on the plaza.

Branding on the plaza
Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
Work in progress.
Integrating the administration building was really a great idea. Actually, there will be more things inside than just offices, but that will probably be some sweet space.
A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon
Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
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 Puckett atrium fireplace is just barely visible at the far left.

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).
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
Also warming things up are these planters.

Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
The windows have started going in.
Scoreboard installation in progress
Nicely-cushioned seats, lots of room, great sightlines
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
