I hope one of the future phases includes building a roller coaster.

I'm still a little bit confused about what it's going to be like when the season starts.  It looks like most of the steel will be up on each side of the current press box and then people will just walk under it to get to their seats.  It will be really interesting to see where they're at in a month because the rendering seems optimistic.  Will be pretty amazing if they really have that much steel up though. I'm guessing someone can correct me on this.

Thanks. I know it would drive me crazy if I lived out of town and didn't really get to see everything go up.

steel goes up very quickly.

the only thing that could make it *kinda* slow would be if they poured each deck before setting the next level.  you can set all the steel though and come back to pour the decks, just makes it more labor intensive for the concrete guys.

Thanks, I was hoping we could get people that know what they're talking about to help out since I'm no construction expert.  Is it pretty common to have a huge steel framework up during a season when doing one of these?

I mentioned in the post about the BTF that I was surprised how far behind they still are and how unfinished the inside is.  I'd be interested to hear from someone with building experience if it's as far off as it looks.

I was thinking about watermarking goEMAW on the pictures as well but I don't want to have to redo it when a super rebellious rebel board starts.  I'll definitely put some links up though.

How will I get to my seat?
Just walk downstairs, pull the shades, and turn on your projector.

Some nighttime pictures of the Jardine apartments.  It was a nice place to bring some food and hang out even though non-residents aren't supposed to use the overlook/pond/etc.
