North Loop Deli
The spruced up triangle really doesn't show much connection with the ballpark.
Love the LC!
Site of the proposed new Atlanta Braves ballpark. Look familiar?
For executive entertaining
A closer look at the grid on the Pro Shop.
What can you see from up there? Some say not much.
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.
Here we are waiting for the first train to arrive at the station (Nov 14).
Here's a curious little room at the end of the circulation ramp. What could they be selling there?
Time to paint those supports Vikings-purple.
Wind veil framing
JohnW provides this shot of a construction barricade on First Avenue
Typical SRO view upstairs.
Main concourse, looking toward the admin building.
These tracks actually travel beneath the admin building and come out on the other side

A mural featuring the names of a bunch of Minnesota towns.
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.
Supports viewed from beneath. These seats will be just a few feet from the outside edge of the building!
The green is a composite of the topmost seating areas in the new ballpark. The gray is a scale diagram of the Metrodome.
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
Knothole non-view #2
Target Plaza looking toward the grandstand
Scoreboard as viewed from Fifth Street.
This is a closer look at the steel work.

This maze of scaffolding is something you'll probably never see again.
The Puckett Atrium
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
