Target Plaza in model form
Friendly faces greet you right inside the door of the Legends Club.
Discussions in progress on some very brown grass...
The east wall of the building looks like it will be the first part completed. These are probably supports for the plaza, and they hug the very edge of the site.
Steps, skyway, and plaza intersect.
Nearby, workers are finishing a support column. The guy at the bottom is using some sort of personal dirt mover (inset). Very cool.
Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
Better them than me
No griping here.

That's Noah and my brother, Chris, checking out the Loge Box amenities
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.)
Staging for the next section (Home Plate Box)
Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.
One more exterior view shows that, while the original look was attractive in a way, it seems to be a variation on the look of the Washington ballpark (albeit with a much more coherent collection of elements). What's remarkable is that the design team has refined the concept amazingly well, improving it immeasurably. What we're actually getting is clearly descended from this, but it's in a whole different league:
Here is where the signature art (original Twins logo) will be placed.
20 minutes to get from our seat to the street. Miss this place? Nah.
The view from our seats. I took this picture while standing, and the railing would prove mildly problematic when I sat down -- but not as much as my scorecard, which I always seemed to be holding right in Vic's view of the plate (she told me so).
This was billed as a diagram of a super-suite. I'm not quite sure just where this (or these) will be located.
Work beneath the scoreboard
Nicely-cushioned seats, lots of room, great sightlines
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
Ye Olde Tyme Vegetable Cart (and its modern cousin)
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)
We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)
