Steel going up fast.
Comerica Park main entrance: Tigers, bats, and much (maybe too much) more (Source: LP)
The Ballpark Authority at work (Source: RP)
Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.
This will be a bar/restaurant.
A trailer village has sprung up to the south.
Impractical, expensive, undeniably cool (Angel Stadium, source LP)
The entrances are all the way around on the other side.
Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.
Fan number 3,030,673 came through this gate a few moments after I took this picture.
Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)
Loading dock -- already in use!
Walkway construction is progressing
Yes, son, Memorial Stadium used to be right there, just beyond those gates.
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.
The lot within the lot.
Just so you have a reference, this is an LD ("low def") scoreboard (inset is what the controller probably looks like).
This is during halftime.
A cold afternoon in 323, but we had our trusty Twins blanket -- made by my mom when Noah was born.
Lots of sun, but not much scoreboard from 127
Walkway sneak peek
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.
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
No admittance -- yet! Note that you can see the seating bolts which are in place already.
Wow! Looking good.
