    It seems they marked off the whole right section with "STAY" in red.
    Looks to be right behind home plate. See the section numbers 3, 1 and 2 (from left to right ) on the posts? Those big girders are likely from the luxury boxes that were there.

      I believe that thats right behind home plate. Those big girders would be the press box.

        • Evidently these are the folks handling the demo. I wonder if they'd put up photos on their site. Breeze (Shea) never did.

              I was thinking the same thing.... I'd be somewhat afraid to be under it when they are plucking stuff out from below. It's like Jenga in there....

                  what about non game days? does the convention center make a difference in "winter"? as much as san diego gets winter weather...
                  in non-temperate weather areas (midwest, northeast) these developments don't merit the outlay of public funds since they cannot attract customers year-round.

                  reality really sucks.
                  enjoy the game more...

                      that's gotta be old, they probably demo'd the area for the new arena to be built, what ever was over there originally

                        There is a decent amount of foot traffic in the gas lamp on non-game days. The convention center makes sure of it. It is by no means a ghost town when the Padres aren't playing.

                        San Diego has a great climate. I never complain when the job sends me to San Diego. I just wish that the Padres or Chargers would be in town when I go....

                        • now that the demo is reaching the upper deck, the white underside siding is coming down - the old ramps and concourse should come into view...

                            Here's how Section 2 looked JUST over 15 months ago & then today in the second photo. I was fortunate enough to sit there several times over the years, including the Final Opening Day in 2008 (photo #3).

                            They were great seats!

                              • Mazzachi documents everything on video and with cameras, especially a showpiece job like this. They have done quite a few different jobs around the tristate area, some quite significant.

                                I bet they have some key points on the job filmed. They are known for having this device called the LRD that can rip things down. It has a tremendous reach for a ground vehicle. I believe they own (2) of them.

                                I don't have anything to do with that business or construction, but I just came across people that did.
