This is NOT Twins Territory anymore
Flowers. Real flowers.
The Seventh Street facade
The view down Sixth Street toward the ballpark site. A pedestrian bridge will extend this street right into the main entrance of the park. The regrettable facade of Target Center is on the left. Butler Square is on the right. Click on the image to see what it looked like on this very spot about 100 years ago.
I do love the upper concourse. Feels like home already.
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
Site of the proposed new Atlanta Braves ballpark. Look familiar?
Here's a closer look.
Emergency access viewed in context
The circulation ramp on the north now has its louver framing.
Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
Very interesting detail starting to appear here.
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
Eleven flag poles
The outline of an infield has appeared on the asphalt in advance of the ground-breaking on Thursday night.

Don Swanson, left, in-coming commander of the Richfield American Legion, and Joe Kennedy, right, out-going commander, are pictured with the Legion's new flag pole, which once stood at old Metropolitan Stadium. (Click to enlarge.)
Ketchup, mustard, relish, mustard, ketchup
This may look like just some guy (perhaps a spy) headed for the train. But it's actually the Northstar engineer!
The suite mock-up
Click on this photo to see what it looked like on this spot 101 years ago (I'm not kidding)
Concrete molds are being removed!
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
Selling exactly what they say they're selling.
I suppose that one day my son will graduate from Mrs. Fields to Hooters. At least he won't have to travel too far. *Shudder*
The top of a warehouse visible beyond a parking ramp.
The entry from the platform to the ballpark.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
