The pouring is taking place at the very bottom of this photo.
This is where the main ticket office will be.
Steps, skyway, and plaza intersect.
The Legends Club retail store is just visible at the right of this picture.

A scene repeated about a BILLION times each game
The glare problem.
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.
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.
Up close, this is what you'll see as you walk along.
A few details worth noticing (Kauffmann Stadium, New Comiskey, Comerica Park, Source: LP)
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
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.
Nearby, workers are finishing a support column. The guy at the bottom is using some sort of personal dirt mover (inset). Very cool.
This is a little section of what looks like a finished foundation. It will be approximately below the Pro Shop (I think).
The finished product.
Some details are visible here, like the back of an escalator.
