It's pretty easy to see right into the Twins dugout!
Nine spots for hops bats.
The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
Directly above the ceiling here is the hidden concourse which served the upper deck prior to the renovation. That concourse was closed off to the public, but became a service level for ballpark employees. It's one of the many quirks which will be lost when the wrecking ball takes the place away.
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
Concourse ceilings (from the Ballpark Authority's May update)
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
A spot that's always full!
Looking from the doorway to the south, across Seventh Street
Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
The Puckett Atrium
Look at all that blank space. Canvas! (What should go on those walls? A giant schedule perhaps?)
Dedicated closed-captioning ribbon board
The limestone now wraps around onto the HERC side.
The view out Gate 6 "Oliva".
Don Swanson, left, in-coming commander of the Richfield American Legion, and Joe Kennedy, right, out-going commander, are pictured with the Legion's new flag pole, which once stood at old Metropolitan Stadium. (Click to enlarge.)
JohnW provides this shot of a construction barricade on First Avenue
The green is a composite of the topmost seating areas in the new ballpark. The gray is a scale diagram of the Metrodome.
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.
This is what will count as a knothole (actually, it's a gated entrance)
Walkway entrance from ramp
The view from the Penn Ave entrance to 394 (and all the way into town! Click to enlarge)
A mass of rebar and complicated cable runs ready for a pour.
One of the many supports being built over the tracks.
Here's another view up Sixth Street toward where the plaza will meet First Avenue (it will hug Target Center all the way).
This is during halftime.
I don't think this will remain a knothole, but the view is pretty cool.
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
For executive entertaining
Though there's nothing there now, you have to believe they'll find a way to add a party deck up there at some point.
A whole bunch of guys working on something.
