Integrating the administration building was really a great idea. Actually, there will be more things inside than just offices, but that will probably be some sweet space.
This will be a bar/restaurant.
The suite mock-up
This is where the main ticket office will be.
This is what passes for imagination at Miller Park -- they didn't even get the shape right! (Source: LP)

Ullger warms up.
The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
The moat walkway viewed from across the park.
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
Typical SRO view upstairs.

Now from the inside looking at the same area.
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
Though there's nothing there now, you have to believe they'll find a way to add a party deck up there at some point.
Dome, what have you taken from us?
The view out Gate 6 "Oliva".
