  • Universal Studios Hollywood - Evolution Plan

    It looks like the old 3 billion dollar upgrade/renovation to Universal Studios Hollywoods backlot and park is being reborn into Evolution Plan.

    Park NewsNBC Universal Evolution Plan. The $3 billion long-term plan around the Hollywood studio property focuses on upgrading and creating new production facilities, providing office space, bringing a new hotel to the property and continuing to provide vitality to Universal Studios Hollywood theme park and CityWalk.
    Studio plans include adding 308,000 square-feet or new production facilities, representing both new and relocated outdoor sets, sound stages, producer bungalows, a screening theater, a rehearsal hall and a film vault. Another 437,000 square-feet of production and post-production space is also planned along with 495,000 sq-ft of new modern office space, including a new Child Care Center and improved parking.
    The plans for the theme park and CityWalk include 146,000 sq-ft of attractions space at Universal Studios Hollywood and 39,000 sq-ft feet of retail/dining space at CityWalk. There is also a possible plan to replace the current amphitheater with a smaller venue to make room for a new 500-room on-site hotel at CityWalk. Be sure to check out the new official Evolution Plan website too. Compare the map on the wrong of the Evolution page to the old map we still have posted from the Vision Plan and there are lots of small differences here and there in the size and shape of some of the buildings in the backlot.
    I am liking the sound of that 150,000 Sq. Feet of future attraction space. I can't wait to see how this develops.

          The EIR does not include the developments they want to do on the MTA lots accross the street from Universal on Lankershim Blvd.

          If you think traffic is bad now on Cahuenga Blvd heading to the Hollywood Bowl!

          I'm not saying I'm opposed to the developments but see this link, too:

            That's great news! Looks like they're finally making the move out of the 1990's. I'm curious how much sq footage the theme park currently covers.

              The AMC (Formally Cineplex Odeon) just had a big makeover, was that what they were talking about or do they plan to bulldoze and build a new plex that is proper stadium?
