Viewed from up Sixth Street, the tip of the canopy looks like the claw of some gigantic crustacean!
The gate has grown a row of sponsorship

A look at Gate 34.
Note the gigantic -- and very permanent -- M's on the gates at the base of these stairs.
Also from the same lobby, other window, a view which will clearly disappear before too long...
The rules were clearly posted next to this new entry point on the Seventh Street side. I have no problem with the rules!

Here are some less intrusive things things you can actually get at the ballpark.
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
Skyline to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the outfield with you... (click to enlarge)
One half of those windows are well-used.
Here's another look at the Oliva gate.
Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.
This is the Seventh Street circulation ramp. Note that the floor is covered with plywood to protect it during construction. Not all construction firms are as careful with this type of protection as Mortenson.

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.
Work going on under the steel.
One more exterior view shows that, while the original look was attractive in a way, it seems to be a variation on the look of the Washington ballpark (albeit with a much more coherent collection of elements). What's remarkable is that the design team has refined the concept amazingly well, improving it immeasurably. What we're actually getting is clearly descended from this, but it's in a whole different league:
