    In the pic or rendering??

      Well, both.

      Here is a screencap from the 3D seating chart on the Nationals website.


      It looks like these are the same luxurious padded chairs from behind home plate, except in red, with each row having a ton of leg room. I don't see any sort of table or place to put food in front of the chairs as PeteU said, though that would make sense for this area. There does appear to be some sort of fence between each row.

      • A second ad is being put up now. Can't tell yet what it's for...

        • I think it is for The Washington Post.

          • Yeah I think you're right. Though somehow, at 1:28, the work they did is no longer visible. At 1:16 it was.

            • Now it says "Post," with the word "Washington" nowhere to be seen. Strange. Does anyone know how they are putting up these ads? Are they painted on? Stenciled?

                  • It's interesting that they decided to put the team store at the bottom of the parking garage, rather than inside the stadium itself.

                        Her site. But yeah, very good site.

                        It's interesting that they decided to put the team store at the bottom of the parking garage, rather than inside the stadium itself. You'd think it would do a better business if people could visit while they're at the park, rather than before they enter and after they leave.

                          Oops, my bad.

                          Isn't the parking garage tied into the outfield concourse so people can come and go out there? Admittedly it's hard to tell at this point.

                          • Yeah, maybe. Hard to tell:


                            The caption for this photo is "The plaza just inside Center Field Gate, south of the Half and N intersection, under construction. The team store is being built in the ground floor of the western parking garage, where the glass has been installed," so maybe that is considered inside.

                            • It's inside. There will be 3 stadium team stores BTW.

                              • Drove by the Stadium on my way to and from Baltimore today. Headed east on the Southeast-Southwest Freeway, you can see some of the upper part of the stadium. Taking the Howard Road exit off of I-295 southbound, you pass right by the stadium on your way back to the SE-SW freeway. It's RIGHT THERE, and looks very, very DC. At street level (admittedly while driving) much of the facade doesn't say "stadium". It will be interesting to see what it's like inside. Looks like I may get to go to the warmup game between the O's and Nats.
