I noticed this detail while taking the previous picture. I figure that it must be the VIP entrance from the surface parking lot. I don't think there is any parking inside the ballpark, so this entrance will likely be for suite-dwellers and other VIPs, though I can't say for sure whether players will enter here.
The reverse angle shows that the signage will only partially obscure views from the top of the ramp. The wall is pretty high up there, so you'll need something to stand on, but it appears that this is one of the so-called "knotholes".
All three seating mounds
Ahh. Lunch in the admin building...
I'm not sure why there's a wreath on Gate 3. (I quickly checked the headlines for any dreaded Killebrew news. Whew.) It looks to be in celebration, maybe of the move.
The parking bay structure is now clearly visible
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
To the left, out of view, was a row of guys in very nice suits. Most I did not recognize.
Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.
Two signs visible from beyond the confines of the ballpark.
The Metrodome has sure been tarted up.
Not me, but it might as well be.

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.

Grid for the ironwood louvres is in place
Some of Minneapolis' finest checking out the construction through a spot where a knothole will be one day.
Detail on the main gate, with Target Field sign
The official ballpark development area
Here's a correction: The LRT platform will actually be able to load outbound trains from both sides.
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.
This is amazingly close to completed. It's a short tunnel entrance ramp to 394 underneath the outfield stands.
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
Ready for action.
Work in progress to improve the streetscape on Second Avenue
Look at all those flag poles! But wouldn't the one from Met Stadium look great just inside the gates in the middle of that entrance plaza?
Press box, hallway to the print room
This is the main entry to the Pro Shop. The second entry, located just outside the turnstiles, is indicated by the arrow.
Now, why is there horse shit on the street next to Target Field? (I saw it in two places. Mounted police maybe?)
Love the LC!
This is what passes for imagination at Miller Park -- they didn't even get the shape right! (Source: LP)
This shows the area where the Northstar platform connects with the ballpark (that translucent oval). Above that is the area which will house the Twins operations offices.
I don't think this will remain a knothole, but the view is pretty cool.

A closer look into the park from down the street. How great will this view be during a game??
