A metal frame has been added to the exterior of the former Universal Legacy Store as it is transformed into an Epic Universe preview center at Universal CityWalk Orlando.

In our last preview center construction update, we noted that the Universal globe sign and a balcony had been removed. We also spotted metal supports along the top of the building on squares of sheathing.

More short supports have since been installed, including where the balcony used to be. The new metal frame is attached to two pairs of supports on a corner.

The steel frame is rectangular with six horizontal poles. They bend slightly at the center, matching the walls behind them.

The Universal Legacy Store closed in January, a few weeks after we reported rumors that it would be turned into an Epic Universe preview center. Universal later confirmed an “interactive” Epic Universe preview center was coming to CityWalk this year.

Epic Universe, the third Universal Orlando Resort theme park, is scheduled to open in 2025. Universal recently revealed details of the park’s Super Nintendo World. They’ve also announced details of How to Train Your Dragon – Isle of Berk and Celestial Park. The other two lands will be the Universal Monsters-inspired Dark Universe and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Ministry of Magic. More information about these lands and Epic Universe as a whole will be released in the next few months.
