Photo update as of Saturday, September 23. From a cast member: Baseline Tap House scheduled opening is Friday, September 29.
On the brick wall facing the Tap House courtyard is a beautiful new mural. Recognize it? It's the Tower of Terror and the streetcar on Sunset Blvd.

That’s the DCA poster, but with Carthay swaped for Hollywood Tower
Does DCA still use this poster since it references the now non-existant Hollywood Tower Hotel?Good eye! I thought that mural looked familiar but I couldn't put my finger on it. It's an altered image of the official attraction poster for DCA's Red Car Trolley ride that is used for DCA merchandise; magnets, t-shirts, posters, etc.
September 29th for Baseline sounds right, but all of Grand Avenue definitely won't be open in 5 days.
Covered fences have popped up around the area, including the planters near the brick to the left.
A closer look of the Baseline area shows it being pretty much done on the outside.
The tunnel entrance being very much not done, also showing off the lights in the area actually being on. Note the black fence at the bottom around a planter area.
Construction walls have popped up near the old Chevrolet building, which is now called "Grand Lofts". The music store is off to the left, and has some decor up. I'm wondering if the avenue might be cut off here when Baseline opens.
Completely exposed construction beyond Grand Lofts.
Seems like a lot of effort to lug a bike up a story.
A small hole in the existing construction fence shows off a bit of the Baseline area:
Lights are on inside Baseline.
Umbrellas wrapped up.
They put the scrim back on the fences after Irma, but never put the wood or signs back up. I have to imagine at least part of Grand Avenue will be open alongside Baseline, but the back of it isn't really in a state to be opened.
