LRT station has appeared.
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
The entrances are all the way around on the other side.
Concept drawing for the fan/player appreciation wall. (Click to enlarge.)
The walkway under construction in the parking lot just outside the loading dock.
One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
Off-topic, but this gigantic, cool, retro sign is just across the street from S&CH. Why? I don't know. Might look nice on top of one of those municipal parking ramps...
I have no idea what this is or does, but as gear goes, it's totally boss, man. (Attached to a railing just off of the Trap)
A peak inside what will become the main concourse.
This is where the main ticket office will be.
Just one lane of traffic and a couple of feet between the fence in right-center and the wall of the parking ramp!

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.
Construction of the stands is moving from left to right in this image.
The brown grass was left over from the first attempt at groundbreaking (canceled after the 35W bridge collapse)
Most of the main concourse is filled with construction materials...
The renderings and concept model differ here. MOJO thinks this is the perfect place for a party deck. Dave St. Peter seemed to agree!
This was actually taken from the top floor of the International Market Square.
Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
Kirby Jr. set to take down the last number
Trees also have sprouted near the topiaries
This area will supposedly show the Twins chronology. Will it stretch back to 1901?
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.
You can get a hand-carved sandwich, or ice cream while pondering the career of Julio Becquer.
Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
Note the gigantic -- and very permanent -- M's on the gates at the base of these stairs.
Name that ballpark
