Panels arriving on flatbed trailers in front of the Twins' dugout.
Here's another look at the Oliva gate.

Memorabilia on display in the Metropolitan Club
Apparently, there will be public restrooms accessible directly from the plaza.
I never think of Rod Carew as a first baseman. But he was.
All that's left is to add wood! (Seventh Street circulation ramp.)

This is the trapezoid (for lack of a better name) in right center. Be sure to notice section of seats just below the pavilion and above the fence (which I hadn't noticed before). For those who are interested, what looks like an old-style scoreboard is in fact a high-def video board which will look, at times, like an old-fashioned scoreboard.
First Avenue at left, bike parking area at lower right
The glorious Gate 34
The field will feel very close.
Indications that club seating (the wider spaced areas above each dugout) will be a major presence in the lower deck
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
Two train stations

From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
Here you can see the real beauty of the Seventh Street side, and get a solid sense of why the overall design really works. The building's purpose is clearly visible, there are numerous connections from inside to outside, scale is nicely mitigated, the stone is attractively used, materials are pleasantly mixed and truly complementary. It's just a winner in so many ways.
That is the gun-metal gray wall of The Stadium just beyond the elevated tracks.
