This is what I was working on while my photo was taken (click to see a VERY BIG version).
The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.

A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
Not much facade left to be finished at this point.
The media all turned out!
The bases for the player statues have been recently upgraded.
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.
Here's one big problem with a retractable roof: completely terrible seating in left. These scant few seats would have been tucked under the track. No sunshine, no open concourse, it was a terribly kludgy idea. With some hindsight, it's very clear that adding a retractable roof on this small site would have required compromises which would have just been too extensive to tolerate. Without it, the design was free to grow into something much more memorable.
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)
Looking up Sixth Street, now barricaded for plaza extension.
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)
A view from up (and in) the street.
Approach in the A ramp to the skywalk over Seventh
Peering through Gate 29 -- lots to see
The past is the future. Seriously.
Looking from the middle of the third base side back toward the entry door
Midway Stadium (seen from our tailgating spot across the parking lot)
This is a little section of what looks like a finished foundation. It will be approximately below the Pro Shop (I think).
At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad
Team pennant. (Click to enlarge.)
This little pathway snakes between the LRT tracks and the Environmental Services Building, emptying into the parking area surrounding the HERC. It could be for maintenance, but it looks more like it's for convenience.
There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
