Jim Hill Media, a website blog that we should be getting used to hearing from for theme park updates, has a new entry
which reveals construction is now underway to prepare the area:
Well, once it's been determined that the Universal Orlando Resort has a level working surface which will actually be to support the weight of this several-hundred-ton structure (Which is quite a concern in sinkhole-prone Central Florida), then construction can then begin in earnest on Hogwarts Castle. With first the footings & foundation work getting underway in January, which will then be followed by vertical construction on this enormous show building in the late Winter / early Spring of next year.
Additional updates and construction photos can be found on Jim Hill Media
. As construction moves along, you can be sure to find the latest updates and complete information in the Theme Park section
of MuggleNet. Thanks to Sagat31 for the link!
