    So a bit of an odd story but it keeps cropping up in things I am looking at about Beijing.

    An official from the Tongzhou district publicity department announced that the dog market will be closed, said a Xinhua News Agency report earlier this week.
    The imminent closure of the dog market is to make room for the construction of Universal Studios Beijing, the fifth such Hollywood theme park in the world.
    Does anyone know the location of this dog market? I have been trying to get a feel for where the park building might start and the fact that these traders have been expecting the move for a while makes me think something is imminent with shutting these buildings down for demolition.

    According to a report by The Mirror earlier this month, Universal Studios Beijing is expected to draw 10 million visitors per year, and provide over 10,000 jobs. The Batong Subway Line and Subway Line 7 will be extended, and a new highway built to connect Beijing-Harbin highway and the Sixth Ring Road to facilitate travel to the area.
    I have been trying to locate landmarks that could be it but the description doesn't fit anything shown locally on Google Earth.

    Any local knowledge would be appreciated in identifying locations.

  2. Anything on this?

  3. I have a pic on this, will post it soon.

  4. Any construction updates?
    Nothing has happened since the groundbreaking ceremony. It's just been a few weeks. Be patient. Don't expect any cranes before maybe 2017.

  5. Any construction updates?

  6. Opening date moved from 2019 to 2020.

    Universal Parks & Resorts, a division of NBCUniversal which owns Universal Studios Hollywood, expects to open North China's first international theme park in Beijing by 2020.

    An official from the Beijing Municipal Commission of Development and Reform told the Beijing Daily that construction of the US$8 billion Hollywood theme park started at the beginning of the month.

    Its first phase is expected to be completed by 2019 with the site opening to public the following year, said the official.

    With a 10 million-visitor target, the official said the park will have seven main sightseeing areas, including those based on the Jurassic Park and Despicable Me film franchises, making it a strong addition to the Chinese capital's already-impressive array of tourist and culture sites.

    Who took the perfect pic?

    There must have been a photographer who took a picture of this from a straight angle. Anyone?
