I love this view of the Basilica.
"Hey look! There we are!"
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.
These two sections are within a few feet of one another.
This is where the main ticket office will be.
Branding on the plaza
A few details worth noticing (Kauffmann Stadium, New Comiskey, Comerica Park, Source: LP)
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
Double plays will be turned here.
(Click to enlarge greatly)
This is the Seventh Street circulation ramp. Note that the floor is covered with plywood to protect it during construction. Not all construction firms are as careful with this type of protection as Mortenson.
These are the outside tracks which go under the promenade
Up close, this is what you'll see as you walk along.
LRT throngs after the game
These are the footings for the staircase which will connect the plaza to the skyway.
Left to right: Opat, Oliva, Dave St. Peter, Melvin Tennant (Meet Minneapolis), Jerry Bell, Rybak
Finally, a night game image -- complete with fireworks! (OK, it's either a construction photo which has been Photoshopped, or some lucky photographer spent the Fourth of July in the upper deck watching the fireworks over the river. Cool either way.)
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
You won't see much sky from these seats, but you'll always be warm
This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
I'm too short to see over that wall. How about a little platform or something?
Not me, but it might as well be.
Just think: It could look like this!
Here's the entrance from the seating bowl.
Gate 6 Oliva, with the 573 Club looming large over it (I wonder how Tony feels about that)
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
For those not wishing to suffer through my media rant, please enjoy this picture of my lilacs in full bloom.
I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
Typical standing room crowd which started early and lasted the entire game.
