So I am DPing, but I wanna show off in this thread the aerials of the Creative Campus from August 1st via Google Earth, alongside the Transport project and Barham (and to talk about Barham and the Red Sea albeit)
Small thing to note on Barham, is that this was shot before the rectangle dirt plots were present. So while it is going to be inaccurate guesses, they will be guesses I have.
Compared to Barham Gate and the originally proposed Red Sea stages, the Red Sea project hypothetically speaking; would've only factored in at around 10 acres. Assuming with the additional stages that would've been installed, the Red Sea would've had about 12 soundstages. With the Barham Gate, the plot of land that they have would be around possibly (and my number game could be wrong) a similar amount to that of the Red Sea stages. Though now, instead of the 12 that would've been in play (and not even factoring the two new Metro soundstages near Kong), that could lead to 18 new stages from the ground up.
That includes the four stages at the Red sea, plus the two at Metro near Kong.
I wonder with the Creative Campus moving office space, perhaps one of the long-term goals, will be to move as much of studio property as they can, to the eastern side of the lot. Leaving the west, to primarily consist of while some infrastructural aspects, to be primarily for theme park development. It'd be a massive move, one that could allow USH to have long term growth without too much self-cannibalization. And I can be easily wrong, but I am willing to wonder about this more intently. Now more than ever, especially with us having a 6 year running start. It would also allow the studio to have high end modern stages that can offer more accessibility; workflow and output for TV/Film projects. Especially if there comes a big push for FIlm/TV post Olympics in California.
Either way, small ramblings from me.
