This view looks through the opening in the fence where the crosswalk will be.
A familiar view through the top floor elevator lobby window in ramp B (HRP View and Terrace).
I had to hold the camera as far over my head as I could to get this shot, in which the infield is finally visible. It's a spot made for your average Timberwolves player.
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
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.
Jose Alvalade XXI Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal has towers much like I'm imagining to hold up our canopy while also making a bold statement on the horizon
OK, just how many servings per container?
Here's another look at the Oliva gate.
Today's late-inning office.
Memorabilia on display in the Metropolitan Club
The HERC promenade side.
The Pro Shop.
Very nice Admin glass.
Here's another view up Sixth Street toward where the plaza will meet First Avenue (it will hug Target Center all the way).

This is the start of construction on the Northstar platform which will feed under the bridge and to a lobby with escalators and elevators just inside the ballpark's public concourse. Compared to the ballpark construction, this looks kind of puny. But the work just to get the trains to come has been positively Herculean. Future generations will look back at this with awe.
I was surprised at how close those upper deck seats seem. From the plaza, you feel like you can reach out and touch them. It really adds to the impression of overall compactness.
Here's the view as you step to the front of the outer moat beyond first base.
The entrance from the service level corridor. (You have to pass the Twins clubhouse door to get there.)
Final pieces arrive
This is during halftime.
This is the last hope for so-called knot-hole views. I'm skeptical.
The outline of an infield has appeared on the asphalt in advance of the ground-breaking on Thursday night.
Wind veil framing
...but you can get a feel for what it will be like.
