Since the weather finally turned nice in Chicago, I decided to hie myself down to Wrigley Field and have a look at the construction project myself Tuesday morning. I don't quite have David Sameshima's photographer's eye, but I hope you'll enjoy this photoset nevertheless.
There was some work going on in the left-field bleachers and a crane was set up on Sheffield, though I couldn't see exactly what it was doing. Most of the right-field outer wall is now complete, and much of the red brick work is done on both sides.
The work gates on Clark Street were open so I was able to step up close to them and take some photos of the work going on in the triangle lot, which I thought was the most interesting thing happening. There's a concrete transfer boom set up there, which you can see in photos 21, 26, 27, 29, 31 and 32, so they must be starting to lay the concrete as the foundation for the clubhouse. You can also get a better look at the "tunnel" that will connect the clubhouse to the office building in photos 28-32.
There were significant numbers of workers in all areas of the project Tuesday morning so it appears that they are really ramping up work now that the weather is nice.
David did go to the ballpark later on Tuesday so I'll have a photoset from him sometime tomorrow.
