Opening Day 2008 (By Currier & Ives)
Bird's-eye view of the trees
This was billed as a diagram of a super-suite. I'm not quite sure just where this (or these) will be located.
Hey! That limestone looks familiar!
This is the plaza as viewed from the A ramp.
Ready for action.
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
Wind veil install from across Seventh
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
This may look like just some guy (perhaps a spy) headed for the train. But it's actually the Northstar engineer!

Saints between innings
Branding on the plaza
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
Seating mound (seen from the B ramp)
This is the view from where the plaza will connect to the walkway on the west side of Target Center. This presumably aids traffic flow back to the A ramp, and perhaps to the skyway connection (though the doors to the skyway right there are typically exit only).

Fifth Street louvers way up close
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
The outfield stands as viewed through the unnumbered gate
These two sections are within a few feet of one another.
Wrigley Field viewed while approaching on foot from the northwest
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.
"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.
