Last updated:

As of today, most of the roof of Innoventions West has been removed as the building continues to be demolished in EPCOT.

Roofing still remains on this portion of the building.

But as we walk further, we can see sunlight peeking through the ceiling beams.

From the other side of the construction site, the lack of roofing is even more obvious.

With the roof gone, it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the building is torn down as well.

From this angle, we can see straight through the building to the new EPCOT fountain on the other side of Spaceship Earth.

Taking down the final structural pieces of the building will likely be the most difficult and dangerous part of construction.

Some of the building’s old wall and roof paneling still remain around this column next to the Expression Section.

Meanwhile, the entrances to Mouse Gear are taking shape during its major refurbishment.

Wood now forms the doorway of one entrance. Windows also completely cover the front of the building now.

Another entrance further down has a small overhang above it.

Next to Mouse Gear, steel poles descend from the ceiling at the Club Cool location. We assume a ceiling will soon appear under these.

Finally, in the future location of a Starbucks and new restaurant, tarps now form a wall on one side. More tarps are also draped over the green structure in the center.

It seems like this project is taking forever because the park is still open. They should have closed the park and took a wrecking ball to these buildings, because it is obvious now that they are not saving any of the existing structure. I think it was ambitious of them to think that this area would be complete in 2 years (pandemic or not). It took them 2 years to convert Maelstrom to Frozen Ever After.
