The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
Because of the scale, it's sometimes hard to realize that there are actual guys down there doing the tough work! Here they are getting ready to pour a footing.
These images are found at the top of the staircase, which leads to the Suite Level.
Marquette looking south
Louver samples on display.
The glare problem.

The Pantheon (with inset of the magic eye)
The media all turned out!
Actual LRT tracks are now in the street, and buses now pass over them before entering the transit hub.
Just lighted panels... *sigh*
Dome, what have you taken from us?
This looks south and shows the track configuration for Northstar. The platform shown is just a placeholder. To the best of my knowledge, concept drawings for this platform have not been released. Keep in mind, this is NOT part of the ballpark project. It is completely separate.
No admittance -- yet! Note that you can see the seating bolts which are in place already.
This is a background image extracted from one of the blueprint pages. It's essentially a schematic of the park (Terrace Level). In it you can see the shape of the various seating areas (to a certain extent).
Finally, a night game image -- complete with fireworks! (OK, it's either a construction photo which has been Photoshopped, or some lucky photographer spent the Fourth of July in the upper deck watching the fireworks over the river. Cool either way.)
Another classic space in the making above the Hrbek gate.

This is a good overview of the spot where the Northstar (bottom) and LRT (top) will intersect.
The first pitch.
Look familiar? Unfortunately, just adding little balconies with cool angles will not offset the pervading ugliness.
At Comerica Park, some aisles have railings and some do not.
A glimpse of the rather plain west facade (the side which faces the HERC plant).
Bruce Lambrecht on the roof of the Minikahda building.
Believe it or not, the actual outfield wall will be about where this fence is now!
Sure would be nice to cover that metal grid with more wooden louvers, eh?
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.
Working on the main concourse right about directly behind the plate.
I think that's a pig up there on that vane!
