This maze of scaffolding is something you'll probably never see again.
The view from the corner of Ford Centre. (Feel free to tie up your boats here.)
Handshakes all around (there's gonna be a lot of that over the next few weeks)
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
"Hey, Ma, it says here we go in at gate 34. Must be all the way around on the other side!" Seriously, though, this is a really inspired idea.
Gate 3 ticket window
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.
Walkway entrance from ramp
Concrete molds are being removed!
From last week, you can see the piers taking shape. I believe that the front row, visible here as just forms and reinforcing rods, is the front edge of the plaza.
I finally found the corner of TF dedicated to the Senators. What a wonderful sight.
Print press box
One half of those windows are well-used.
This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
Earl Santee, principle architect for HOK Sport, presents some concepts while Mike Opat listens
Desolate. Dirty. Mysterious. Expensive. Unlikely.
Another B ramp glimpse (don't loiter here!)

For those not wishing to suffer through my media rant, please enjoy this picture of my lilacs in full bloom.
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.
Gate 29 escalators
The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
Wayfinding within the B ramp is still a work in progress.
For some inexplicable reason, a lot of the new parks being built these days feature grand staircases like this one.
