Your Tax Dollars At Work: Latest Photos of the Marlins' Stadium Under Construction

You, yes you Miami-Dade and City of Miami tax payer, paid for the majority of the cost for the Marlins' under construction stadium. So perhaps you'd like to check in on how the thing is coming along. Surprisingly the project seems to be coming along on schedule, and while we're still not sure whether or not it was needed, we can say at least it looks pretty. 



Construction began in July of 2009 and is expected to be completed by April of 2012. With a little more than a year and two months to go until that deadline these pictures

released by the team

give us a pretty good idea of what the final product will actually look like. They've even started work on that retractable roof. 


Should the Marlins ever make it to the playoffs again, blimp cameras should be able to air some pretty stunning images of the actual city of Miami to a national audience. Let's hope the Marlins' get their team in line so the sights on the field will actually be more thrilling. 

While American Airlines Arena's spot as prettiest stadium in the city is probably safe, we have to say the baseball park is shaping up to look pretty nice. Maybe we'll actually attend a game or two here.
