Waiting for a train. Reading on the promenade. How urbane.
5:45 PM, section 327, row 9, standing: sunshine.
A very unique space
Looking across the plaza toward the main ticket area.
Gate 6 is quite large
At TF, you never know when you may bump into a Pohlad

Entrance to the Champions Club
Trees also have sprouted near the topiaries
Killebrew taught, "Always make your autograph legible, boys."
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.

Here's a closer look at the bullpen area. It's hard to tell for sure, but I think there is still an opening to the concourse right above.
This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
...but you can get a feel for what it will be like.
Despite what those signs say, every one of these places was selling either snacks or Yankee memorabilia out of its front door. Do you suppose anything like this will spring up anywhere near the new Twins ballpark?
Large staircases, a staple of recent Populous (nee HOK) projects, are all over the place.
Supports viewed from beneath. These seats will be just a few feet from the outside edge of the building!

Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
No griping here.
Now looking north, the tracks emerge from beneath Seventh Street as freight tracks only. The Northstar line ends at the northwest corner of the ballpark. One day, however, you can bet that other passenger trains will approach from the southwest metro on these tracks -- if our legislators are smart and persistent, that is.
Working on the main concourse right about directly behind the plate.

This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
