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.

A seating bowl comes into focus. Note that the netting has been installed on the foul pole. (Field Box)
This looks up Sixth Street from Hennepin. Just imagine what this will look like during a night game!

It's just a winner in so many ways.
