Skinny dugouts at TF
The Target Center rooftop patio. Hardly glamorous, but a great view of the ballpark.
A detail from the above image shows that the section signage is now in place
For reference, this is that same area as viewed from the seat locator.
Uh oh. A code of conduct. Clearly posted. I'm not gonna mention any names, but you know who you are... (Click to enlarge.)
TC meets the Mayor (Photo by Jeff Ewer)
An arch under construction.
A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)
Pile driving in progress
Uh oh. Schizophrenia.

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.
Work in progress to improve the streetscape on Second Avenue
Dramatic night-time lighting.
The parking bay structure is now clearly visible
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)
The future history of Minnesota ballparks will go here
Wow! Looking good.
This looks from the base of the stairs, behind the big pillars, toward the street.
A view into the park down Sixth Street from just beyond Hennepin. Note that one side of the street contains century-old, classic buildings -- structures which are likely to last another century or more. The other side, not so much. (Click the image to see what it looked like from exactly the same spot 97 years ago.)
The littlest Twins fan: Truman
Champion's Club details (click to enlarge)
These tracks actually travel beneath the admin building and come out on the other side
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)
Here's the view from the main concourse out through Gate 3 "Killebrew".
Bronze glove delivered (awaiting installation) with Met flag pole horizontal behind the gate
This mural is behind the staircase. The window looks onto the promenade, and the door goes to a kitchen.
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.
