Then perhaps this, will help.The whole soundstage plan is so confusing to me lol. I need Google Map type of pictures of a before, after and future.
I hope Universal doesn't get rid of the Production Bungalows....that's where Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and DreamWorks SKG have their headquarters.They announced back in 2016 that they would be adding 10 soundstages into the Backlot, where the former Red Sea is. And that, with how LA is now approved for the 2028 Summer Olympics, there should be two additional soundstages added into the Red Sea Soundstages.
They also added new soundstages next to the Metro Set's, and that they have plans on removing multiple soundstages, with some already gone (The Former 22-25 Soundstages).
I would assume they wouldn't be able to, even if they wanted, by leasing contracts and what-not.I hope Universal doesn't get rid of the Production Bungalows....that's where Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment and DreamWorks SKG have their headquarters.
Thanks so much! This definitely helped me understand it a lot better!Then perhaps this, will help.
Universal Plans New Soundstage Complex, Theme Park Expansion – Variety
As of now, Soundstage 29 seems to be staying, and might be used for Theme Park/Studio use for special events and what-not. So that in practice, the soundstages/facilities leaving should be simple:
Soundstage 22-25 (Already gone)
Soundstage 31 (Already gone)
Soundstages 33-37 (In the cards to go)
Rehearsal Hall (In the cards to go)
Soundstages 41-44 (In the cards to go)
And as for new soundstages,
Soundstages 22-23 [Metro Set's Soundstages] (Already done)
Soundstages 24-27 [First Phase of Red Sea Soundstages] (Already Done)
Remaining 8 Soundstages on Red Sea (In the cards to happen)
As far as the Studio Lot, there are plans in place to add new soundstages on the eastern end of the Backlot (with the first phase already complete, as 4 soundstages have been built since 2016).Where is there room for all of this? Was the plan for Universal to dramatically downsize their studio lot?
The Frankenstein Parking structure can only take up so much weight.Here's a crazy thought. What if the Fung Lum plot was used to expand the Frankenstein Parking structure? This could potentially expand the upper lot and could fit an attraction behind Minions.
If they built a new parking structure like he's suggesting that would not matter. It would be designed with the weight on top in mind.The Frankenstein Parking structure can only take up so much weight.
After Pets, that's likely it, unless they do major changes to the infastructure of that structure (and surrounding area).
Personally I think having more garage parking than needed for awhile might not be the worst thing if you are gonna need it down the line. Just look at the mess Disneyland has themselves in preparing for SWGE right now because they couldn’t get the Eastern Gateway done any time over the past 20 years that it’s been proposed.^-- I think that'd be a really cool idea, and an awesome place to put a Hollywood version of Suess Landing (obviously smaller though), but I feel the need for Universal operated Hotel rooms is more important. I also believe that our current parking infrastructure is more than enough to support the next half decade of growth (at least).
I mean, there is the option of adding parking structures next to where Jurassic Parking & ET Parking are as it stands, making multi-floored complexes as it stands.Personally I think having more garage parking than needed for awhile might not be the worst thing if you are gonna need it down the line.

Based on the photo this looks like it will take up the Fung Lum lot and hillside.As someone who's only recently begun to follow USH stuff, could anyone give me (and anybody else who's in the same boat as me) maybe a brief rundown on what we could reasonable expect here?
Im just not aware of potential land availability, USH's profits, etc. Id think a hotel must be in their future, especially if they're going to continue to develop the lower lot into more park stuff.
