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.
A new address for the Admin building
This is the main entry to the Pro Shop. The second entry, located just outside the turnstiles, is indicated by the arrow.
An early concept drawing for the site
This view, also from the same warehouse roof, shows the newly-rebuilt viaduct on North Seventh Street.
Jose Alvalade XXI Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal has towers much like I'm imagining to hold up our canopy while also making a bold statement on the horizon

Here's the barricade in context at the end of the walkway
Scoreboard installation in progress
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.

Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
A last look on the way out.
Work on the pavilion in center.
This may look like just some guy (perhaps a spy) headed for the train. But it's actually the Northstar engineer!
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
The glass area seen here is one of the warm-up areas.
Checking out the bike racks on the promenade.

Path of quick escape.
This was actually taken from the top floor of the International Market Square.
Balcony of the Town Ball Tavern.
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
