First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.

The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
This would be easy to miss, but I found it on a cart located directly behind the Batter's Eye seating on the upper concourse in center field.
At lower left are the seats I'm not going to use any time soon.
I set up my late inning "office" at the drink rail behind section 206
This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
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.
Waiting for a train. Reading on the promenade. How urbane.
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
These stairs will meet the skyway.

The finished product.
Mystery door on Seventh Street...
Here's a closer look.
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Even today, throw a fastball to that guy at your own risk.
Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
That warning sign doesn't mention anything about the potential for bludgeoning or limb removal by the revolving doors...
Entrance to the Champions Club
Site of the proposed new Atlanta Braves ballpark. Look familiar?
This is where the plaza meets First Avenue
This is very early in the day.
If you are into shade, there are lots of opportunities. This is from the last row in section 108 -- scoreboard not blocked in the least.
The Northstar station.
This view is from the roof of a warehouse which stood where the A ramp is today. The HERC is now located where the tracks turned north (toward the top).
A new restaurant going in at Fifth Street and Second Avenue
Which way to the skyway? Really??
