I suppose that one day my son will graduate from Mrs. Fields to Hooters. At least he won't have to travel too far. *Shudder*
I do love the upper concourse. Feels like home already.
Love the lighted, translucent panel

Bird's-eye view of the trees
I took this picture from the Overlook at great personal risk, because everything Thome was hitting was landing out that direction.

A sign that your mall is all but dead: roped off escalators. (This is at about 4:00 PM on a weekday.)

The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
That's Fifth Street (and a tattooed arm) in the foreground.

Very nice Admin glass.
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.

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.
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)
B ramp at left, ballpark at right (and visible far away through the tiny crack)
No griping here.
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
The shade of the canopy gives way to a brief shaft of light. It would do the same again a short while later when the sun passed through that tiny open sliver between the View and Terrace levels.
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
