Scoreboard as viewed from Fifth Street.
Sure would be nice to cover that metal grid with more wooden louvers, eh?
Fencing is going up all along the plaza
The entrance from the service level corridor. (You have to pass the Twins clubhouse door to get there.)
There's a great, big, beautiful tomorrow! (I loved this place as a kid.)
A very unique space
If you arrive by bus, your first glimpse of the park will be the scoreboard's profile. (Viewed from the bus station in the B ramp.)
That's Jacque Jones looking up in awe at the Great Greenness.
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
Reverse stairway view
Best view available from the "B" ramp.
ATM-style ticket machines have appeared beneath the steps to the B ramp (you can also enter the B ramp directly by walking past the ticket machines)
From about two blocks away you can finally get an idea of what it looks like. Just to my left (but out of view) was a valet parking stand where a limo was idling.
8:02 PM It's at peak, affecting mostly the upper deck.
The glare problem.
We'll be packed into the first five rows of section 136. Hey, Wilson! I'm bringing my glove!
Here's the field of posts which will support the third base side of the grandstand. Some walls have started to appear about where the Northstar riders will enter the park.
A place to sit (does it look like a pitcher's mound to you?)
Window area sketched by the limestone
A sampling of seats at Fenway Park
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
Walkway construction is progressing
A few details worth noticing (Kauffmann Stadium, New Comiskey, Comerica Park, Source: LP)
One more time from the third base side.
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
Champion's Club details (click to enlarge)
This is the left field pavilion in the original concept model. The restaurant pictured to its right has been moved, and the seating area has been extended at least one full section toward center.
