There are some great banners on fencing down Target Way. I'm not sure just who sees them.
These outfield stands will likely remain visible to passersby.
I don't know if the back side is also a test for materials, but it could be a hint of how the exposed steel supports will be finished. Or it could just be to hold up the stone.

This is the outside portion of the Metropolitan Club.
It's pretty easy to see right into the Twins dugout!
The Pro Shop.
It looks like the Target-themed signage has spilled out to the surrounding area (this was taken from the entryway to the B ramp from Third -- the 394 entrance ramp tunnel)
Work in progress to improve the streetscape on Second Avenue
Loading dock -- already in use!
That's Fifth Street (and a tattooed arm) in the foreground.
The heretofore unseen north facade (click to enlarge). Does it look like a ballpark? And what's with the bamboo?
At one point, we thought these windows might represent one of the so-called knotholes. But nope. Nothing to see here. (Nearest I can tell, there will be no view of the playing field whatsoever from the Seventh Street sidewalk.)
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)
These are the footings for the staircase which will connect the plaza to the skyway.
Nearby, workers are finishing a support column. The guy at the bottom is using some sort of personal dirt mover (inset). Very cool.
Seating mound (seen from the B ramp)

The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
Not my actual kids!
