This is the view from where the plaza will connect to the walkway on the west side of Target Center. This presumably aids traffic flow back to the A ramp, and perhaps to the skyway connection (though the doors to the skyway right there are typically exit only).
The Pro Shop.

This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of Seventh Street (looking west away from downtown). It's inviting, not imposing, and remarkably dignified.
The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
A walkway begins to form (this is as close as you can get right now)
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
Steel going up fast.
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.
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.
Work beneath the scoreboard
Now we know what the English phone booths were for...
Suite level view
Home Run Porch Terrace (bottom) and View (top) as seen from the top of the B ramp
Sharing and Caring Hands, as viewed from the ballpark site about a block away. Note transaction in progress in the shadows.
"I've never seen them do that before," said a Metropolitan Club waiter as I snapped this picture.
Condiments! (complete with faux limestone on the cart -- nice touch)
There's the opening through which the groundskeeping equipment will emerge (and disappear).
Our host points to the Puckett Atrium on the diagram.
Snow-blowing the field
I took this picture from the Overlook at great personal risk, because everything Thome was hitting was landing out that direction.
Scoreboard in profile against the skyline
Detroit got this part right!
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
This opportunity is half a block up Third Avenue and thousands of people walk right by before and after games.
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.
The brick has been tinted where the circulation ramp meets the admin building.
This is a little section of what looks like a finished foundation. It will be approximately below the Pro Shop (I think).

This is where the main ticket office will be.
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
Work in progress.
