Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
The big glove will go on that circle. Note the gap between the plaza and the ramp. That's 394 you can see through there.
Sue Nelson, and her organ, in one of the Twins Pubs
The LRT station, sitting in a brand new urban canyon, takes shape.

That's some scary-ass scaffolding, if you ask me.
Scoreboard as viewed from Fifth Street.
Catwalks provide access to the View Level seats (from the Ballpark Authority July update)

The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
Looking across the top of the batter's eye
The Ron Coomer corner features a bar.
This is one complicated streetscape.
Very nice Admin glass.
