The bridge is Seventh Street.
I didn't check the menu too closely, but it looks like all the standard fare is available, and not much of the non-standard stuff.
Lower deck view of the out-of-town scoreboard.
Here's a rack of lights being prepared for lifting into the canopy.
Approach in the A ramp to the skywalk over Seventh
Let's be honest and say that this promenade, which will face the HERC plant, won't be the most exciting part of the streetscape. It has to be provided for circulation reasons, but there won't be much to see unless vendors and other attractions take root here.
Snow-blowing the field
Reverse view, now looking down Sixth toward the park. The Met Stadium flag pole will be right there!
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.
Looking back toward First Avenue
Detail of the train tunnels (click to view the entire drawing)
Staging for the next section (Home Plate Box)
Looking back toward downtown from the end of the balcony
The closed concession stand.
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)
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
A closer look at the bridge and walls. You can see where the tracks will be laid.
This was billed as a diagram of a super-suite. I'm not quite sure just where this (or these) will be located.
Note the speakers hanging beneath that deck
Infield dirt used as accents
Larry DiVito takes a last check of everything before the game starts
Walkway construction is progressing
Here's a detail from the above image, showing the LED strips up close.
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
Integrating the administration building was really a great idea. Actually, there will be more things inside than just offices, but that will probably be some sweet space.
2014 Twins ASG promo bat.
A little more imaginative is the circulation building for Northstar.
Work on one of the side panels
First Avenue at left, bike parking area at lower right
Giant screened images! (573 Club, my back to Seventh Ave windows)
Note that, even though the scoreboard appears strategically placed, it's the outfield stands which block any potential view of the field from this roof.
