Footings for the Seventh Street walkway from the A ramp.

The Ballpark Wall! (really stunning)
The back gates at Comerica park, like everything else, a bit overwrought.
The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
I meant to include this shot the other day. It's the new LRT bridge being built next to the remaining half of the Fifth Street bridge. The new half is almost TWICE the width of the portion torn down. And the other end runs right into a HERC administration building! (Click to see the view from nearly the same spot about 85 years ago.)

Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
The media had some beautiful foliage to use as a background.

These are the footings for the staircase which will connect the plaza to the skyway.
