    Tom Mehrmann was named as Universal Studios Beijing's President and General Manager in early October.

    Mr. Mehrmann will play a lead role in the continued development of Universal Beijing. Once the destination is complete, he will oversee its opening and ongoing daily operations. He will report to Page Thompson, president and chief operating officer –International, Universal Parks & Resorts.
    Universal Beijing is being built in partnership with the Beijing Shouhuan Cultural Tourism Investment Co., Ltd., a consortium of five Beijing state-owned enterprises, and Universal Parks & Resorts. Universal Beijing will initially occupy a 147-hectare (approximately 363-acre) site located in the Tongzhou District of Beijing. The theme park will be accompanied by a Universal CityWalk entertainment complex and two hotels, including a first-ever Universal themed hotel. The theme park will include all-new attractions designed especially for China as well as some of Universal’s most popular themed entertainment experiences from around the world.

    Google maps have been partially updated from April.



    Main changes are around the building area where land is being cleared.

    I think the article is referring to this quote:
    "Maybe five years down the road, we'll be opening [Super Nintendo World] in Beijing," Michael Cavanagh told market watchers in Boston.

    it has also been announced that this new attraction to rival Shanghai Disney will now also include a Super Nintendo World.
    It's also uncertain as to whether the Super Nintendo wing will open during the initial Universal Studios launch or whether it'll come later.
