Up there is where I plan to buy a lot of hot dogs. You can see the vending areas developing rather quickly around the completed portion of the upper concourse.
The bridge is Seventh Street.
Here's the view of the entrance ramp to 394. Looks like they are painting...
Concrete molds are being removed!
Section 117, Row WC (applies to all the back rows under the Legends Club seating)
From the roof of the B ramp, you can see just how futile it will be to get a glimpse of the action.
The splendid view from the roof of the Minikahda building. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
"Hey look! There we are!"
At the corner of the Pro Shop.
Also viewed from the B ramp, that's the upper deck in left field.

Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!
Circulation ramps: Wrigley (classic, integrated) and Kauffman (modern, external)
This is the Metropolitan Club as viewed from the future Ballpark Authority office space.

Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
This is the area above the pro shop, with some new support structure
This terrible picture shows the netting in place through a knothole on Fifth
The Puckett atrium fireplace is just barely visible at the far left.
Serious home dugout work in progress.
Concept drawing for the fan/player appreciation wall. (Click to enlarge.)
The Puckett Atrium
Work in progress.
Finished product (Field Terrace)
