B ramp glimpse
An alternate route into downtown. (Click to get an interactive map.)
Concept drawing for the fan/player appreciation wall. (Click to enlarge.)
This view is from the roof of a warehouse which stood where the A ramp is today. The HERC is now located where the tracks turned north (toward the top).
A little higher angle shows how the two stations are close to one another but distinctly separate. The oval, glass-enclosed area is the entrance from the Northstar platform below into the ballpark. The LRT platform is comparable to the other stations along that route.
Window area sketched by the limestone
This looks up Sixth Street from Hennepin. Just imagine what this will look like during a night game!
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
I think AP is in there somewhere...
No griping here.
"Original" or "Dinger" Dog
A sidewalk has sprouted between the HERC and the LRT tracks!
The plaza as viewed from across the park. The right field overhang section will be built just in from where the plaza supports are.
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)
First, an overview. The base of the plaza here will meet the base of Sixth Street at Second Avenue.
The field will feel very close.
Hops! (conceptual only)
Bird's-eye view of the trees

Main concourse, looking toward the admin building.
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
This view looks up Fifth Street toward downtown and shows how the LRT tracks sort of snuggle up to the ballpark.
No, that's not Kent Hrbek. It's catcher Glenn Borgmann.
The media all turned out!
Skywalk over Seventh
Notice that the wooden-backed club seats are now covered by a green tarp for protection from the elements.
Roped off for the LRT crowd
That's part of the wind veil, waiting in the B ramp for installation
Oh, a flag pole will be so much more...dignified
