This is what an Anonymous reader posted in Blog comments last Sunday night: There is a big meeting this week from what i have heard with
Then Friday Blog reader Jason71 posted this on another Disney bulletin board: Hearing building demolition begins in October, only question is whether BET/AdvClub or Beach Club goes first.
That was responded to by someone named PKD who said this:
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
As you know from prior articles here on the Save PI Blog, work has already begun on the PI #1 bridge from Marketplace. That arch truss bridge section on the east side of the bridge (upper left photo) has been completely removed. It appears they are turning a bridge made up of 3 sections into 1 wide bridge as you leave Marketplace. The main path would then cross into this back stage area (upper right photo) which is between Raglan Road and Portobello Yacht Club. Motion, as seen in the photo, would be demolished and the main path would cut through there.
With RRBC and Motion demolished (upper left), the path would come into the main section of the Island via the Funmeister Plaza and proceed up what used to be called Hill Street. The rumored Lighthouse fast food restaurant/waterfront bar would go there. The current main path around and beside Raglan Road would still be there but presumably the goal is to get most foot traffic to go the new way to improve the flow.
I was told long ago from a highly reliable source that the Mannequins/8TRAX building cannot be demolished because the power grid (upper left) for the entire island is located in there. But that does not preclude the complex from being repurposed......or reopened. Finally, that is my new kitten Cody who appears on the Blog today because I needed an even number of photos for this article.
