Though the land has been under construction for a few months now, today (June 8) marks the first portion of the project that involves vertical construction.
Only up from here, right?
Still no official opening date announced for the land, but with the park at large again open to the public and construction seemingly resuming in full force, here’s hoping more information about a timeline is on its way. So we can all coordinate when to rush the gates as a unit.
