Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
Parking ramp knothole
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)
Detail enclosing the main ticket window area
The completed promenade
5:45 PM, section 327, row 9, standing: sunshine.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
In the top of the 9th, the sun hit our backs and summer took one last long look.
Fencing is going up all along the plaza
Directly above the ceiling here is the hidden concourse which served the upper deck prior to the renovation. That concourse was closed off to the public, but became a service level for ballpark employees. It's one of the many quirks which will be lost when the wrecking ball takes the place away.
Gate 29 "Carew" is at right.
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Today's match-up (click to enlarge)
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.

Steps going up at Gate 29/Carew
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.
Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
Glass going in over the Oliva gate.
Lunch break at the top spot. (Grandstand)
Peering through Gate 34
Detail of view to the northeast (Source: LP)
Perched welder on the top of the canopy.
Those two empty seats in the front row are where we started the game.
One half of those windows are well-used.
I still counted 11 flag poles...
