Photo update as of Monday, Jan 12. One building's façade on the narrow street between Portobello's and The Boathouse now has construction walls, in preparation for it's tenant. The window coverings have been removed and are open now. This building is directly behind Portobello's.

New construction wall with art posters between the World of Disney and Lego stores. The wall blocks access to the public restrooms on the side of the Disney store. Could this art be a view of future Disney Springs?

Interesting. That is the 2nd piece of DS concept art that has a large riverboat out in the water.

is fultons built as a boat or as a building made to look like a boat?

assuming the later, but if its the former they could make it move, but i know that would be super far fetched

The art that showed the boat "out in the water" was just a super representation of a scene. It was more of a feeling of what that area would be like and not a factual representation of the area to come.

Agreed. The problem with concept art is that sometimes people take it way too literally. Like when the 7D mine train didn't cross a "log bridge" people were upset.

I didn't expect that to come to fruition, believe me. I just thought it was interesting how that popped up like that. However, it is fun to dream about the possibilities at times. :D

Photo update, as of Sunday, Jan 18. Copper awnings were installed over two doorways on the building in the passage between Portobello's and Raglan Road.

(And the scaffolding is removed from the The Boathouse's tower. See additional photos in the thread for The Boathouse.)

These planters next to Harley Davidson were finished before the holidays, and the plants were removed recently. Two construction "boxes" have appeared, perhaps for something more permanent?
