Target HQ main entrance. Ballpark resemblance? (Inset.)
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)

Preparations underway (Field View)
Not much facade left to be finished at this point.
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.
Looking back toward the park from just beyond the north end of the Northstar platform.
The Ceremony (VIP in the crowd)
Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.

Original Concept - With a Retractable Roof
Just some of the lumiaries who turned out for the unveiling (Terry is clearly thinking about Sidney Ponson).
B ramp improvements are finally becoming usable. The doors lead to the plaza beneath the skyway steps.
Party deck down the right field line
Stepping inside the circulation building
Lots of people are doing it.
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...

The New as viewed from The Old.
Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.
The proposed wooden screen covering the circulation ramp on Fifth Street (at left is the equivalent screen on Seventh Street).
Hit gap, win suit!

The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.
