    Looks like it should be called Wine Bar Rizzo.

    Stunning. Best building yet at DS. Anyone know if this is designed by Imagineering or another entity?

    shall be an interesting build, since its framed in by finished buildings, so thats going to make constructing this a challenge

    guessing this will require more nighttime construction than the rest of the landing required
    that building looks way bigger than the land area

    is most of the restaurant upstairs? then with shops on the first level?

    is part of this replacing part of raglan road,

    hard to visualize as the concept art makes the building look like its built like an inside corner, but the the land area makes it look like the land is an outside corner

    Photo update as of Wednesday, Jan 25. The construction fence has been extended into the main Landing passage, with space for just two people to walk through. Disney has placed signs on both sides to alert guests with ECVs, wheelchairs and strollers to take an alternate path around Raglan Road.

    Behind the construction fence, some work has started on Wine Bar George. Compare this photo with the one posted on Nov 7 on the previous page.

    not sure how they could do this differently

    but i'm a bit surprised this is even legal from a safety standpoint

    Photo update as of Friday, Feb. 17. Work seems to have slowed on Wine Bar George. Inside the construction fence looks much the same as my last post of Feb. 6. However, the construction fence has been moved back, giving more pedestrian room at this busy Disney Springs intersection.

    seems like there was some kind of delay, this seems to be moving super slow

    they put the wall up forever ago, but then haven't done much

    not sure how these projects are funded. as some of the remodels seem to be being paid for by the tenant, but then other buildings i'm sure were paid for by disney even if they look custom to the business then the business pays rent.

    so this ones probably a disney project, while planet Hollywood that was slow probably wasnt

    In the mean-time, you should hit up Tutto Gusto, fun wine cellar hidden behind Tutto Italia.
