Demolition permits filed in preparation for WWoHP Phase II construction!

Permits that were filed with the South Florida Water Management District to demolish areas in Islands of Adventure’s Lost Continent area have turned up thanks to the fact that the theme park fandom seems to be full to bursting with Sherlock Holmes clones.

Said plans are calling for “the demolition of site buildings, hardscape features, landscape features and underground utilities in anticipation of new construction.” 

Permits were filed a while ago for the demolition of two buildings, but the new ones reveal just how much is going to be demolished and gives us an idea of what will go in its place. Right now, all evidence points to a certain train en route to a certain (magical) school.

This means that, in addition to all the new land that’ll be dedicated to Potter over in the Universal Studios park, Potter’ll be taking over even more IoA territory.

Here’s a more visual representation of the areas in question:

That’s right next to Dragon Challenge and, more importantly, the current Hogwarts Express photo op!

Here’s what’s possibly the most exciting part, given that we already knew about the Hogwarts Express: the documents state the estimated completion of demolition as July 2012, meaning we’ll be seeing actual construction within a few months.
