Marlins press has some perspective on the Richard Justice Memorial Press Box, either

The Palm Beach Post's Joe Capozzi makes mention of the new press box:

The other is the view in this picture, taken from the newly-located press box.

We were a level down, in prime seats behind home plate. Now, we’re one level up where we probably belonged to begin with.

Ever since Minute Maid opened (back when it was called — gulp! — “Enron Park”), writers bragged about the prime press box seats. But we often wondered, too, how much potential money the Astros were missing out on by not renting that areas out to companies.

The Astros finally caught on. Can’t say I blame them. And I can’t complain about the new view, either.
