Dan Kenney provided this alternate shot of a walkway behind the view level
Up close, this is what you'll see as you walk along.
Team pennant. (Click to enlarge.)
Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.
The lot within the lot.
Steel meets concrete, with the last rays of sun visible through the suite and concourse openings at left.
Mystery door on Seventh Street...
Click to enlarge greatly. See yourself?
Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.
Wrigley Field. Paradise? Not from these seats.
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
Polo Grounds from the south
A closer look at the grid on the Pro Shop.
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
The right field overhang as seen from Seventh Street (with dude)
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
The walkway under construction in the parking lot just outside the loading dock.
Just up the foul line, it looks like the base of the wall in foul territory on the right side.
I think that's a pig up there on that vane!
Frost on the pumpkins, snow on the plaza
We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
A slightly different elevation drawing, again viewed from Fifth Street, with some labels. (Click to enlarge.)
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
A scene repeated about a BILLION times each game
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
Notice the temporary railing extensions
Another view of the escalator, which apparently comes preassembled!
inal plaza surface is poured.
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
