Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
This is the left field pavilion in the original concept model. The restaurant pictured to its right has been moved, and the seating area has been extended at least one full section toward center.
Somebody asked how long it would be before the tarp had a sponsor. Well, not very long.
What are they hanging over there?

The lot within the lot.
We'll be packed into the first five rows of section 136. Hey, Wilson! I'm bringing my glove!
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
Playing surface dirt out there? Maybe. (click to enlarge)
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
Suite level view
First Avenue at left, bike parking area at lower right
I love these upper neighborhoods.
Legends Club seats feature in-seat service
A photo taken as my meter ran out.
Row indicators are spray-painted with stencils over rust and peeling paint.
The suite mock-up
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
Press box, hallway to the print room
Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
ATM-style ticket machines have appeared beneath the steps to the B ramp (you can also enter the B ramp directly by walking past the ticket machines)
Here's another view up Sixth Street toward where the plaza will meet First Avenue (it will hug Target Center all the way).
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
Lots of sun, but not much scoreboard from 127
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
Party deck down the right field line
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
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
At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad
