A distinct misstep, ostensibly to guard against missteps. But methinks I smell a lawyer...
Legend's Club, Section E (Click to enlarge greatly.)
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.
The east wall of the building looks like it will be the first part completed. These are probably supports for the plaza, and they hug the very edge of the site.
This looks from the base of the stairs, behind the big pillars, toward the street.
Secret entrance exposed!
The steel cage expands.
A classic profile on the horizon
Ballpark elevation viewed from Seventh Street. (Click to enlarge.)
These stairs will meet the skyway.
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
The top of a warehouse visible beyond a parking ramp.

CBP: retro in facade only
At the end of the balcony you can see down the promenade.
I took this because of the view reflected in the store windows. (The store is cool too.)
Viewed from a different angle, it seems fair to wonder is some of those seats will have slightly obscured views. Yet, if they're cheap, that's not a problem.
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".
Love the lighted, translucent panel
Not much facade left to be finished at this point.
The blue line now indicates where the back of the accessible seating ends and standing room begins.
Dancing for the cameras
Stairs and escalator down to the platform
Some details are visible here, like the back of an escalator.
Looking from the doorway to the south, across Seventh Street
This is the LRT path looking from the ballpark site (behind me) toward downtown. The line currently ends about two blocks up this street. This bridge over I-394 is also being partially rebuilt as part of the ballpark project.
Fenway has posts. Target Field does not. But...
Circulation building with construction team on top
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
