I love views like this. They show just how much Target Field shimmers. (Photo by Jeff Ewer)
No admittance -- yet! Note that you can see the seating bolts which are in place already.
Good seats, but no scoreboard or sky.
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.
Signage for the concession stand which is available from the plaza (plaques are up on the fencing)
Special guests in the trees!
In case you don't know, that's Earl Battey.
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
That's part of the wind veil, waiting in the B ramp for installation
Upper deck view of the out-of-town scoreboard.
Champion's Club moat (windows are found at the base of the limestone behind the seats -- not visible in this image)
A true fan out in the bleachers
Dugout Box and Champion's Club sections are sequestered by separate moats
Staging for the next section (Home Plate Box)
Friendly faces greet you right inside the door of the Legends Club.
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!)
Open concourses do mean that you can glimpse the field no matter where you are, but not really the game.
This is one complicated streetscape.
Flag poles, fencing, main entrance gates
Click to enlarge greatly.
Open house skeptics
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
World Series trophies on display at left
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
This little item stands just to the south of the site, where the volleyball courts used to be. It has to be related to exterior finishing elements, which means this is the first glimpse of the actual stone to be used. Very buttery.
