UOR Permit Update 6/19/12: Lost Continent Demo

Universal City Development Partners filed three demolition permits on January 20th of this year, and today, they were finally issued.  The three permits are for Building 234A, 234A Tent, and 234B. These buildings are located in the Lost Continent and are right outside of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  People are probably most familiar with the ice cream stand that was in one of the buildings.  It is believed that these buildings are being demolished to make way for the Hogwarts Express Hogsmeade Station and possibly a new entrance for Dragon Challenge.

The permits were approved long ago, but it seems like Universal wants to take these buildings down while they have the demolition equipment on property for Soundstage 44.  They finally picked up and paid for the permits.
