Here's another look at the Oliva gate.
Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
Our cantilever friends will be happy to learn that there will be sections with views like this in the new stadium.
This looks from the base of the stairs, behind the big pillars, toward the street.
An escalator was going in the day I was there.
Limestone still dominates the Seventh Street walkway from a pedestrian point of view. But brick take over as you move upward -- a concession to cost, no doubt.
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.

Time to paint those supports Vikings-purple.
What has been actually built so far is only a tiny subset of this vision.
All that's left is to add wood! (Seventh Street circulation ramp.)
Heaters over standing room (the backs of the retired number circles visible above)

A detailed crowd shot. Click to enlarge greatly.
Millers fans leaving Nicollet Park after a game in 1923, where a trolley was waiting. (Click to enlarge.)
The glare problem.
The Legends Club retail store is just visible at the right of this picture.
There's the opening through which the groundskeeping equipment will emerge (and disappear).
For those who have never seen it up close, that's what it looks like when steam comes out of the HERC plant.
The scoreboard terminates the view on Fifth Street as seen from Hennepin

Opening Day 2008 (By Currier & Ives)
I love this view of the Basilica.
This is a little section of what looks like a finished foundation. It will be approximately below the Pro Shop (I think).
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?
Complicated pedestrian crossing
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
