As work is wrapping up on The Landing district of Disney Springs, attention is now very much on building out the The Springs and Town Center.

New concept art on display along the rows of construction walls give us a first look at some of the new buildings now under construction. 

Although no specific tenants are revealed, two of the pieces of concept are show a restaurant and patisserie. The waterside area of The Springs is being built beside Raglan Road and T-REX on a former parking lot.

The Springs is expected to be opening in early 2016.

Save PI has posted a really nice update today. There is a lot of detail in the photos and it's obvious that imagineering has taken over for at least the first part of the springs by T-rex. Oh and let there be Shrubbery!

Witnessed Church Street Station tonight with my own two eyes, it's still there and filled with people wearing Orlando City SC gear (because that's the hipster thing to do in Orlando now of course).

Apparently this is going to be the place to go after an outing to Churchill downs, or perhaps Church Street Station (if that even still exists).

allright i concede the point there, but then again the water is more than 6 feet away from the sidewalk, not 18 inches... i do not understand it on the sassagula, that might be the next lawyer-up section of the park (since all the pools are now fenced)

@WDW1974 said that Fulton's is on it's way out soon and there have been rumors of it turning into a New Orleans style restaurant so it'd make sense, but nothing has been confirmed at all.

That was the first thing that popped into my head, too! I wish, I wish, I wish...

Not always, as evidenced by this view along the Sassagoula River at Port Orleans: But I agree, Disney Springs will be effectively cordoned off by landscaping or barricades (fencing).

That's what I assumed, just couldn't tell from the pictures. So the the ops question, it looks like it was just artistic license.

dstrawn9889Jun 29, 2015

there is ALWAYS fencing around water; if it is enough there to drown a toddler, it will be cordoned off

danlb_2000Jun 29, 2015

Does anyone know if these areas near Planet Hollywood had fencing or are they using a more natural looking barrier?

dstrawn9889Jun 29, 2015

no the lawyers (may they all be fed to to the T-Rex) will allow no such thing... now if they planted shrubbery and placed post and rope 'chicken wire' style fencing -- that gradually would disappear into the shrub wall

The latest photos show some of these buildings are quite substantial , but the artwork shows trees towering over the buildings. Are we likely to see this sort of mature planting in the Springs. plus, alot of the artwork shows no fencing between the water and the shoreline - would Disney health and safety allow this? Just an additional comment - if we are going to see trees of the height shown in the "pastries" artwork, then Disney Springs will be so much more alive than any other Florida mall and will kick Citiwalk into the hills!

Better than seeing crop tops and baggy jeans...

I love that they are wedging in a slice of what made the original LBV Shopping District so beautiful. Really hope that is what the art work shows. And a 'Tianas Place' would truly be a gem if they add it. Icing on the cake. Gets better everyday. :)
