Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.
Approach in the A ramp to the skywalk over Seventh
The Northstar stop has a name.
I saw it at another park...
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
The plate marker is just to the left.
Team pennant. (Click to enlarge.)
It was in and then quickly out of his glove. You gotta make that play.
Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
I will take a picture of just about anything.
Just up the foul line, it looks like the base of the wall in foul territory on the right side.
A closer look at the grid on the Pro Shop.
This design has a rather generic quality to it, but they appear to have considered the B garage. Though it isn't part of the model, they've clearly left room for it.
The alumni band sounded great.
The green in question (click for very large version)
Thanks for all the hard work out there, Cold Safety-Line Dudes. (I'm glad that my job does not require safety lines...)
A view from up (and in) the street.
Walkway entrance from ramp
Not my actual kids!
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.
This view, from the Minnekahda building (or possibly a predecessor), looks toward the right field corner. The City Market, at left, occupied the land where the B ramp and Target Plaza now stand (over I-394). And the Overlook now juts out just a little beyond where that driveway enters the railyard.
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
Upper deck view of the out-of-town scoreboard.
This will be a bar/restaurant.
The steel cage expands.
I never think of Ron Jackson at all.

He'll always be a fan favorite, but did you know that he's making $18.5 million this year? The Twins' entire outfield today, combined, makes $7.45 million.
