Here's another look at the Oliva gate.
The sculpture on which millions of kids will one day pose.
There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
I set up my late inning "office" at the drink rail behind section 206
Checking out the bike racks on the promenade.
...but you can get a feel for what it will be like.
Bird's-eye view of the trees
A view of construction from the B ramp. This looks toward Seventh Street, over what will be Gate 34 (the main entrance).
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
Showing more of the context for the louvers.
Saints between innings
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
I know these are giants bats with hops growing inside, but... Hmm...
The view out Gate 6 "Oliva".
Legends Club seats in context (above the main concourse, below the suite level)
A new restaurant going in at Fifth Street and Second Avenue
The entrance at Gate 3.
Nuts on Clark (a couple blocks north of Wrigley Field)
The wooden louvers are in on Fifth Street
Many people will approace the park from this direction and it's a pretty great first glimpse. It features all the design elements in modestly condensed form, and still manages to look like a ballpark (instead of something else).
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
The outfield stands taking shape.
Signage for the concession stand which is available from the plaza (plaques are up on the fencing)
The overhang as seen through the unnumbered gate
From about two blocks away you can finally get an idea of what it looks like. Just to my left (but out of view) was a valet parking stand where a limo was idling.
Directly above gate 6 "Oliva" on the Club level.
Ben took this picture of me (carrying my mostly useless camera) and Twins rep Chris Iles down by the admin building
Looking from the doorway to the south, across Seventh Street
