10 years ago, Bruce Lambrecht looked at this land and thought, "Why NOT a ballpark here?" It took a long time before anybody else saw the same potential.
Seventh Street circulation
Ahh. Lunch in the admin building...
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)
This shows the area where the Northstar platform connects with the ballpark (that translucent oval). Above that is the area which will house the Twins operations offices.
Future home of the Met Stadium flag pole
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
An early concept for St. Paul.
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
This is very early in the day.
A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??
One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
Original Concept - With a Retractable Roof
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
The shade of the canopy gives way to a brief shaft of light. It would do the same again a short while later when the sun passed through that tiny open sliver between the View and Terrace levels.
8:32 PM The glare is gone. Elapsed time: 1 hour (approximately 3 innings).
Legends Club seats feature in-seat service
The Legends Club retail store is just visible at the right of this picture.
Some of your fellow BPMers at a game in May of 2010 (we had almost the whole section)
Signage for the concession stand which is available from the plaza (plaques are up on the fencing)
New Concept Drawing - No Roof
The official ballpark development area
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
