We stopped by Coronado Springs this week to see how construction and refurbishment has been going at the moderate resort. You can check out how far things have progressed since our last construction report in April.
Repainting and Refurbishment
Noted in our last report, the El Centro building is being repainted to match the upcoming colors of the new tower. You can see the crews working on this in the first image.
Looking at the far right of the administration building you can see the old, faded color scheme as compared to the left which has the darker new colors.
In other random notes, the El Centro sign displayed on the right of the pathway entering the main building is missing. We hope for its swift return.
Pathways in the lake
Last time we visited, the basic supports were the only thing in the water. It appears more wood is being placed to create the foundation for the pathways and buildings.
This pathway will lead guests out of El Centro right from the exit near Pepper Market/Maya Grill.
We noted some wildlife observing (enjoying?) the construction.
The Fifteen Story Tower
Words can’t describe how massive this building really is. This first image is from across El Centro, near where the pathway above starts.
You can see some of the lower floors are starting to be closed-in while the top floors are still being constructed.
The structure has yet to top out. We’re hoping to see the signature tree and flag on top of the building within the coming weeks signifying the tallest point.
