A Universal Studios theme park in Beijing appears one more step closer to happening, according to a Chinese report.
Blooloop found a report from Shanghai Securities News that officials from the National Development and Reform Commission in Tongzhou District in Beijing have filed an application to begin construction on the park in the fourth quarter of this year.
The project's budget is estimated at US$2 billion (RMB12 billion). Demolition is underway at the site, and the report says that construction would be completed by January 2018.
Creative is trying to keep it quiet. Expect a construction period similar to Singapore, except this time around they'll have more control over what happens in the rest of the resort.
No truth ..then we have the official announcement from Beijing or central government, i believe the negotiation is on going. If not, it would have been release at IAAPA 2013...
Seriously? Do you have any source for this?
I'm hearing the project is a go, without a New York or Jurassic Park area. Despicable Me/Minions/Super Silly Fun Land and Potter should open with the park.
Universal Studios Beijing is going ahead!
These reports have been published in March 2013:
