Looking across the plaza toward the main ticket area.
I will take a picture of just about anything.
Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.
Three weeks ago this was a patch of scruffy trees. Now it's a patio. In case you were wondering, that's where I've been...
The Overlook, as seen by outfielders
Steel going up fast.
Double plays will be turned here.
Lots of pix waiting to be seen from Bert's memorable night.
Branding on the plaza
Which way to the skyway? Really??
Puckett atrium menu part 2 (Those prices match elsewhere in the ballpark.)
That's part of the wind veil, waiting in the B ramp for installation
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
Town Ball Tavern balcony
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
The HERC promenade side.
The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
Looking south (toward Seventh Street).
Chef stand and menu in the Carew atrium
For those who have never seen it up close, that's what it looks like when steam comes out of the HERC plant.
The service entrance area in left-center, now with bench seating
Guthrie Theater (original design colors)
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.
I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
