Judging from the plastic sheeting over the press box windows the field side color is about to change.

Glad the complain crowd had their moment though.

Entertaining reading this thread and watching the progress.

Anyone know what the 2 black poles are for in the lower center of the gold camera screen? They were pouring concrete and then stopped and left 2 "squares" empty for a while and now appears to be 2 black poles in the concrete.

Maybe its just me but as good as the Camera shots are, seeing it in person, it looks much better to me. I am really excited about this project work especially being someone who remembers no Concrete stands over on the East side.

Those are posts for a gate. There are a number of those black gates throughout campus.

You know it's getting close to occupancy when they are delivering couches to the club and planting trees by the entrance...

At some point isn't there a crossover or bridge to get from the stadium into the new building? Looks like that could be one of them.

The new stadium club is part of the 2nd floor of the WAC. The picture appears to be that walkway.

On Saturday, my son and I took a drive down from York County, PA for some subs at Malin’s, and ice cream from the Creamery (oh, yeah, and to see what’s happening up close at the stadium / WAC). Here are a few shots. I’ll add some more in another post. Size maxed out at 4 photo’s on this one.
