It's soooo glad to hear!
A lot of US Universal guys relocating to Beijing at this very moment. Project is going ahead full steam. Exciting times!
NBCUniversal Chief Executive Officer Steve Burke's statement from September 13, 2016 on Universal Studios Beijing's current status:

Our partners are on the same schedule to get the park open by 2020," Burke said. "We have full models and drawings. We know what attractions will be there. We've got complete agreement on sort of the way the structure of our arrangement's going to work…We have hundreds of people currently working on the project and look forward to getting it open in a few years.
So hasn't changed too much but the google earth image has been updated and you can now see the bottom extent of the park
I hear that construction is in full swing now. Does anyone have photos?
Also Google Earth just got updated so (ignoring the fact that the pictures are merged with an older image) we have a view of the size of the netting. See the flats/apartment blocks in the bottom left corner for scale. Those are the ones from the previous posted panorama.
Interestingly there are numerous blocks of land in that area also covered green which are not connected directly to that area. Any ideas anyone?

Position for "General Counsel" was advertised this week... Not a huge amount of detail but interesting that they are hiring someone for legal at this stage rather than using an existing employee. I think that is a great sign that work will move quickly.
The General Counsel of the Managed Components Branch reports to the General Manager and is responsible for leading the legal function and handling the general legal issues related to the operation of the Managed Components of Universal Beijing Resort (which include the theme park, parking areas, CityWalk, common areas and back of house areas).Source: https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/job-listing/beijing-general-counsel-universal-studios-JV_IC2398510_KO0,23_KE24,41.htm?jl=1815278359Responsibilities include negotiating, drafting and interpreting complex business contracts, third-party services agreements, managing issues relating to compliance, intellectual property, human resources and procurement matters.
