Construction Week - New Twins Ballpark

| 2 Comments

We wrap up construction week by taking a look at the new Twins ballpark. The ballpark, slated to open in time for opening day 2010, will cost over $500 million and is being paid for through sales taxes in Hennepin County and by the Pohlad family, owner of the Twins. The Pohlad's are contributing about 1/3 of the price which is about average for these kind of deals.

Just a week ago, I provided some links to good ballpark pics so I won't add a lot here, but I do suggest, if interested, to check out those sites. In fact I will only provide 2 pics but from a vantage point not seen much.

Click on the photo to see a larger pic.

First, the site May 23, 2007

Now the site May 28, 2008.

Shows what $100M and 12 months can do. Can't wait to see what May 2009 and May 2010 bring.
