A permit was filed today with the South Florida Water Management District for “Project H” to clear the land of vegetation and stockpile fill. While we don’t yet know what “Project H” is, the site specified in the permit is directly adjacent to the new Star Wars land under construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
This site (shown in green) is a 9.5 acre plot of land directly across the entrance road from the show buildings being erected in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and is a likely spot for the location of the new Star Wars hotel.
The site is directly south of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and would be just below the show buildings shown in this construction photo.
Last April, WDWNT broke the news that a new Star Wars-themed boutique hotel was being considered for Walt Disney World. Disney’s Chairman of Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Bob Chapek then confirmed this rumor at the D23 Expo last summer.
