By now, everyone should know that phase 2 of CityWalk Orlando's expansion has officially started. In fact, the demolition of the NASCAR Sports Grille begun a few weeks ago, and it is already at a very advanced stage, and that is just the first of a series of locations that will be replaced very soon. If rumors are to be believed, one of the next buildings that will shut its doors is the NBA City Restaurant. That said, let's focus on the work currently being done:
Welcome to CityWalk:
Let's head right away to the former NASCAR Sports Grille:
The entire front facade of the restaurant has been completely removed:
All of the props attached to the ceiling are gone:
A look behind the walls:
Only the supports of the building have been left standing:
As you can see, this is definitely a major change, not a quick overlay:
Some panoramic photos of the area surrounding CityWalk:
By the way, you can expect a new King Kong construction update in the next two days:
This should be all for now. Be sure to stay tuned, as we plan on posting a second photo-report later today that will show you another entertainment district located along International Drive. See you soon.
