Avengers Campus - Construction/Specifics

Looked like a large building that can is separate from the smaller entrance building. Speaking of the large show building I really hope that the art they showed was just a teaser art and not finished. If all they do is paint the building grey and add a huge "A" logo I will be very disappointed. They really need to add a proper facade to match the entrance structure. It will also be interesting to see how they make the building fit with Carsland. A huge grey building looming over Luigis and dwarfing the eastern mountain range will not be very appealing.

i agree. That’s such a cheap and lazy way out. This isn’t the Hollywood backlot where you I can get away with that.

From the concept art, it seems like a platform for a Quinn Jet could easily be built separately. That and the Dr. Strange show area would pretty much block out the Avenger ride construction zone. So actual ground breaking for the ride could be a ways off as there would be a pretty contained Marvel area with two attractions, shops, dining, M&G space and show space.

Hopefully they go way underground but it doesn’t look like it in the concept art.

The platform for the Quinn jet is actually already being placed on the entrance show building. The supports were pointed out in one of the videos. You are correct that the show building can start at anytime since it will be in a secluded construction zone.

Its too bad that they may not continue the aesthetics of the entrance building towards the showbuilding. Something like Hong Kong concept art would work nicely as a backdrop facade for the building. Lets hope they addres the backdrop for Luigis though

they also seem to be taking the lazy route out on the northern side. The animation building will only be getting a grey paint job and a logo. I am sure that at ground level the height of the PYM and restrooms will hide a good chunk of it but not sure about that once you are standing on the south side of the land by Dr. Strange area

That's a good call. One of the things they have taught in new employee orientations is the importance of "transitions" as in between lands. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. I'm not optimistic.

I wonder if that is cheaper to retrofit and build around the existing structure or just bulldoze the entire thing and start new

There are degrees of reno. WDW Tomorrowland was a reskin. DL Tomorrowland '67 and Fantasyland '83 involved a lot of stripping down to structural steel, even if the cement floor was ripped out. Note that all subterranean construction was limited to areas not being re-used.

Gotta count those beans!

So it has never happen where they bulldozed an entire land and started with a blank slate. They away retrofit and expand existing building.

Wait, they've bulldozed an entire land before - A Bugs Land!!! To bad they will never bulldoze Tomorrowland.

Well, where do you want to draw the line? Yes, they bulldozed most of Flick's Fun Fair (except for the restrooms, which are getting a re-skin). But they're repurposing the Bug theater and they have already rethemed ToT to Guardians. So if they didn't bulldoze the Bugs theater and the restrooms, and they're adding the rethemed Tower, is that really bulldozing an entire land? How about bulldozing the entire Indian Village and the cheesy corrugated steel access tunnel to build Bear Country? Oh, wait--whatabout Sunshine Plaza to Buena Vista Street? Ooops, they kept some steel. OK, I give up--what are the rules? (If there are any.)
