Finished product (Field Terrace)
This would be a beautiful streetscape if there were ANY people.
The back row of seats in straight-away center. Note that, beyond those seats, you can see the planters (for flowers) on the front of the Left Field Bleachers.(Batters Eye)

Nicely-cushioned seats, lots of room, great sightlines
Entrance to the Champions Club
Bike parking available along Second Avenue
Two train stations
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
The Target Field grass, it turns out, will be green. (This is a photo representing the concept of grass only. The actual Target Field grass apparently will not contain dirt patches, weeds, or dandelions. Imagine that -- if you can!)

Tony Oliva, R. T. Rybak and Mike Opat

Then you turn around to this!
The scoreboard also towers over the LRT tracks, which now are functional (though not open) all the way to the park -- and beyond!
The finished product. Note that, at the very bottom of this image, you can just barely see the tops of the windows which look into the Champion's Club. (Home Plate Box)
