Lost Continent Demolition Plans

Lost Continent Demolition Plans

Remember those permits we posted awhile back for the demolition of two Lost Continent buildings? Well, new permits filed today with the South Florida Water Management District reveal the full scope of the demolition, and they paint a pretty clear picture. A picture that looks an awful lot like The Hogwarts Express.

The plans call for “the demolition of site buildings, hardscape features, landscape features and underground utilities in anticipation of new construction”. So not only are they getting rid of those two previously mentioned buildings, but they’re also demolishing/clearing a large section of land directly behind them, all the way to the back of house access roadway behind the Sinbad theater.

Demolition Area

In the image above, the shaded portion represents the area affected by these plans. They seem to be creating a direct line of access from just outside the Hogsmeade arch to that back of house roadway behind Sinbad. The rumored Hogwarts Express is looking all but confirmed now. For a better idea of the location of these plans, here they are overlayed on an aerial image of the area:


And on one final note, the documents filed with these plans indicate the estimated completion date of the demolition is mid-July 2012, so expect to see work begin in the area pretty soon.
