Looking across the plaza toward the main ticket area.
A desolate Marquette Ave
This was billed as a diagram of a super-suite. I'm not quite sure just where this (or these) will be located.
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
I'm not sure why there's a wreath on Gate 3. (I quickly checked the headlines for any dreaded Killebrew news. Whew.) It looks to be in celebration, maybe of the move.
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
Open concourses do mean that you can glimpse the field no matter where you are, but not really the game.
This is where chain link is being replaced with fencing which matches the plaza
A few weeks ago there were sand volleyball courts here. When the park opens, this will be surface parking. Maybe one day there will be something more interesting built on top of that parking...
This looks up Sixth Street from Hennepin. Just imagine what this will look like during a night game!
Nicely-cushioned seats, lots of room, great sightlines

One more exterior view shows that, while the original look was attractive in a way, it seems to be a variation on the look of the Washington ballpark (albeit with a much more coherent collection of elements). What's remarkable is that the design team has refined the concept amazingly well, improving it immeasurably. What we're actually getting is clearly descended from this, but it's in a whole different league:
Trees now line Seventh Street
Viewed from the A ramp.
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
Red is old Yankee Stadium. This diagram comes from FieldOfSchemes.com
A skyway-level view down Seventh Street.
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).
After the rain. (We were in the wrong spot to see the rainbow...)
The Polo Grounds (left) and Shibe Park (Connie Mack Stadium)
OK, just how many servings per container?
The pink thing is a mascot. (Actually, with a damn fine mascot actor underneath.)
8:32 PM The glare is gone. Elapsed time: 1 hour (approximately 3 innings).
I love this view of the Basilica.
You can get a hand-carved sandwich, or ice cream while pondering the career of Julio Becquer.
Roped off for the LRT crowd
Emergency access as viewed from outside the ballpark

Installation in action (Home Plate Box)
A look at Gate 34.
Concourse ceilings (from the Ballpark Authority's May update)
Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
