The wooden louvers are in on Fifth Street
This is a closer look at the steel work.
Somebody asked how long it would be before the tarp had a sponsor. Well, not very long.

Looking back toward the ballpark from Third Avenue and Fifth Street. Again, the track configuration is now clearly visible.

Also from the B ramp entrance off of Third, a look up at the tiny crack between ballpark and parking ramp
Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
Very interesting detail starting to appear here.

What are they hanging over there?
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
The rough outlines of our urban trench. (North is up.)

This is the view from the Seventh Street circulation ramp. It will eventually be covered by the wood louvers.
The plate marker is just to the left.
These images are found at the top of the staircase, which leads to the Suite Level.
