    Shanghai Daily also reporting construction has begun and has a great statistic...

    China is promoting consumer-driven growth, and theme parks are being built in the country faster than anywhere else in the world, with more than 300 projects reported to have been funded in recent years.

    The first Disneyland on the Chinese mainland opened last June in Shanghai at a cost of US$5.5 billion. Last year 21 theme parks opened, according to Chinese media, and the “National Business Daily” newspaper said a further 20 were under construction.

    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.

    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?
