Grand Avenue Construction Progress Including BaseLine Tap House (September 2017)

Things are moving at break-neck speed over in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Of course the majority of the focus is on the upcoming Toy Story Land and Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, both of which we just got brand new models for in the newly remodeled Walt Disney Presents.

But before you can even get to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, you’ll first need to go through the new Grand Avenue section of the park.  Thanks to @bioreconstruct we have a look at some of the Grand Avenue construction progress including the BaseLine Tap House through September 2017.  Let’s take a look:

Around in the Muppets Courtyard(soon to be called Grand Park) we get a look at a good part of Grand Avenue and really see it’s coming together quite nicely!  Here we have a shot of what looks to be a Music Shop Storefront, goes along with the hip-vibe Grand Ave is supposed to give off:

Addresses are starting to show up on the buildings too.  This one is 72 Grand Avenue:

Here’s another look at the storefront windows with clothes being added to the displays…

A close look gives you a shot of the freshly painted mural that’s up on the wall of BaseLine Tap House:

Speaking of which, one of the main points of Grand Avenue is going to be the BaseLine Tap House, a pub serving up small style eats and focusing on California Wines, Ales, Beers and Lagers.  Here we get a look at the sign up which is themed to moveable typography.  Fitting seeing as the BaseLine Tap House used to be a mom and pop print shop with ties to the Disney Studios in Burbank…

The sign on the wall sheds more light onto the back-story showing that it used to be the Figueroa Printing Company, which is also what we’re betting the Gate to Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is being modeled after…

We also have some of the food and beverage offerings for the BaseLine Tap House, and the Hours which will be from 11am until 8:30pm:

Here you can see an outside seating area for BaseLine with tables and umbrellas setup:

Now by looking at the layout of Grand Avenue you’ll also see that it borders with Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.  In fact at the far end of Grand Avenue you can see the entrance to Galaxy’s Edge:

Grand Avenue opens this Fall (if everything goes to plan) so the rest of the construction should move right along the next couple months…
