A path for workers -- don't touch the plaza! -- in front of three giant Chia pets
Crosswalk taking shape.
This is what I was working on while my photo was taken (click to see a VERY BIG version).
Believe it or not, the actual outfield wall will be about where this fence is now!
Lots of work has gone into detailing the fronts of these decks. That is a little thing, but a NICE little thing. (HRP View)
Glass going in over the Oliva gate.
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
Seventh inning sing-along.
Some brick work out in the centerfield pavilion.
The Ballpark Authority at work (Source: RP)
Ballpark elevation diagram, viewed from Fifth Street. (Click to enlarge.)
Stairs wrap around the skyway escape tower. A very nice finishing touch.
The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.
Skinny dugouts at TF
Here's the entrance from the seating bowl. It's down the outer moat, just beyond the last of the Dugout Box sections.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
Legends Club seats feature in-seat service
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
The suite mock-up
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).
Best view available from the "B" ramp.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
A closer look at the louvers
A last look on the way out.
Jose Alvalade XXI Stadium in Lisbon, Portugal has towers much like I'm imagining to hold up our canopy while also making a bold statement on the horizon
Staging for the next section (Home Plate Box)
You are forgiven for wondering whether architect Tom Oslund is, in fact, a visitor from the future.
A few details worth noticing (Kauffmann Stadium, New Comiskey, Comerica Park, Source: LP)
Nicely-cushioned seats, lots of room, great sightlines
Open house skeptics
Still some work to be done on the canopy.
Such promise. (Click to enlarge.)
