    According to the latest local news report, much of the park's main steel structure and infrastructure will be completed this year. Most of the ride installation will take place in 2020. In addition there's an onsite nursery for foliage that will eventually be used as the park's landscaping and by May of this year the entire nursery will be operational with more than 2,600 shrubs and trees.

    In a news video (embedded below) we get a great look at the construction taking place at the park especially of Hogwarts Castle/the ride building for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and the footers in front are for Flight of the Hippogriff. The news video is talking about the Beijing government's urban management department working to ensure that as springtime begins construction sites including Universal Beijing are controlling the dust and dirt from blowing around etc.

    Jurassic World area of the park being shown in a video



    Not only is the steel structure continuing to rise on many of the park's main ride buildings but it also looks like the structure for the Jurassic World mountain has just begun to go vertical!

    New photos and video of the construction site:












    Also just to make a couple of things clear there's been an article going around with some misinterpreted information regarding the naming of certain parts of Universal Beijing Resort. Recently when Universal launched the official website it clearly said "Universal Beijing Resort" so people thought that meant that the theme park which they had been calling "Universal Studios Beijing" is now officially called "Universal Beijing Resort." This is not true not only has the name "Universal Beijing Resort" been official for years but that's not the name of the theme park. The theme park itself is still Universal Studios Beijing. The entire complex is "Universal Beijing Resort." Also when this article was translated from Chinese (http://bj.people.com.cn/n2/2019/0221/c233080-32663811.html) to English (http://www.china.org.cn/china/2019-02/22/content_74493750.htm) and then picked up by more English news sites (https://blooloop.com/link/universal-beijing-resort-theme-park/) it referred to the dining, retail and entertainment district as "City Avenue" as opposed to "CityWalk." Like at the other Universals around the world it will be called "CityWalk" but it is written in Chinese as "城市大道" which literally translates to "City Avenue." Writing it in Chinese as City Avenue is just to make it more clear to the Chinese visitors but for consistent branding it will be called in English "CityWalk" which is proven here https://corporate.comcast.com/news-information/news-feed/universal-theme-park-and-resort-planned-for-beijing and here https://www.universalbeijingresort.com/en/news/2.

    So just to give an overview:

    The entire complex is named 北京环球度假区 = Universal Beijing Resort
    Within the complex is a theme park named 北京环球影城 = Universal Studios Beijing
    Also within the complex is a retail, dining and entertainment district named 城市大道 = CityWalk
