  1. Good news. Construction officially started in Universal Beijing.

    BEIJING: Construction has begun on a US$7 billion Universal Studios theme park in Beijing, state media said on Monday (Oct 31), as the studio looks to challenge Disney in China's booming leisure market.

    The complex is due to open in 2020 and has secured investment of 50 billion yuan (US$7.4 billion), the official Xinhua news agency said.

  2. 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:

    We'll own 30 or 40 percent of the park. 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.

    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).
    Responsibilities include negotiating, drafting and interpreting complex business contracts, third-party services agreements, managing issues relating to compliance, intellectual property, human resources and procurement matters.
