    The above is an on-site project management building, probably will be of administrative purpose after the construction is completed.

    Below are three photos already in #174 but of higher res. The two domes of the bottom photos is the transit entrance connecting Line 7 and Batong.

    Great new photo of the resort showing the construction in full swing (click on images to view them in full size)



    Green arrow - Beijing Subway station (set to be completed by end of 2019)
    Yellow arrow - NUO Resort Hotel foundation
    Pink arrow - Park's central lagoon
    Blue arrow - Jurassic World dark ride building structure beginning to rise
    Purple arrow - Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride building almost ready to go vertical
    Orange arrows - Steel structure for Kung Fu Panda indoor area
    Red arrow - WaterWorld stadium beginning to go vertical



    In this new satellite image from earlier this month you can see that work has begun on most rides, restaurants and other buildings at the park. Refer to the layout on post #169 (https://www.themeparx.com/universal-studios-beijing/?p=13408#post13408) to get an idea of where attractions are located.

And if you ever need some basic translation from the local news I could also help. The only update I can contribute right now is that metro Line 7 and extension of Line Batong, both of which will connect to the transit hub at the park, are slated to open by the end of 2019. Not sure if it will help with the construction in any meaningful way, but definitely better than the park waiting for the transit.
    Any photos you can get of the park being built would be greatly appreciated

    Great new photos of Universal Studios Beijing especially this first photo of the work taking place on the Jurassic World-themed roller coaster. The big circular part is the base of the glass dome structure and the area to the left is where the coaster's signature mountain will rise.







    According to the article that these photos are from Universal Beijing Resort's general manager was quoted as saying the following (paraphrased translation):

    The development of Universal Beijing Resort has always been highly anticipated by the peers and consumers in China's tourism industry. As all projects progress smoothly according to the established schedule, we look forward to in the near future sharing more exciting milestones about Universal Beijing Resort. We have reason to believe that Universal Beijing Resort is bound to become a world-class theme park entertainment destination with leading standards in China and around the world.

    Yesterday morning, January 4, Universal Beijing celebrated the successful hoisting of the first steel structural column for the indoor Kung Fu Panda area!







    Also yesterday was the opening day for the Beijing Tongzhou District Sixth People's Congress Fifth Meeting during which it was revealed that the first phase of Universal Beijing Theme Park and Resort is set to open in 2021.
