The limestone theme is apparently carried to the area behind home plate. This will look great -- and distinctive -- on TV. But watch out for those foul balls!

Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
A cold afternoon in 323, but we had our trusty Twins blanket -- made by my mom when Noah was born.
Through the windows of the Metropolitan Club you can see one of the displays of Met Stadium memorabilia.
I love these upper neighborhoods.
Viewed from up Sixth Street (that's Target Center on the left), you can get an idea of how the connection is currently planned. As it stands now, the plaza will extend to that support pillar, from which a stairway will empty to the sidewalk below. If they get their wish, additional support structures will provide a walkway along Target Center which will gradually (without stairs) meet the sidewalk somewhere up near First Avenue.
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.

The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.
Looking back toward the doorway into the club
I'm too short to see over that wall. How about a little platform or something?

Looking the other direction, again from Ford Centre, you can see what's going on over the tracks. This will be a public promenade.
The outline of an infield has appeared on the asphalt in advance of the ground-breaking on Thursday night.

A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
Trees now line Seventh Street
Target Plaza looking toward the grandstand
Still some work to be done on the canopy.
