Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.

This was from January 19, 2007, when it looked like wonderful things might never happen here.
OK, just how many servings per container?
Freight trains run in very close proximity (Jerry Bell was standing at my left elbow when I took this picture)
