Signs of painting and tarping placement indicate construction is progressing on the site of the former Groove Dance Club at Universal Orlando CityWalk.
As previously reported, CityWalk’s The Groove has closed and may be replaced by themed escape rooms. Building panels and walls have been in place since November 2021.
The steel tower is still standing, but all signage has been removed as we reported.
Several tarps were hung with painter’s tape to protect certain areas at the start of the painting.
Surfaces and columns appear to be given a different paint job: an off-white replaces light turquoise.
It’s possible the structure will get an all-new paint job, and the white is likely a primer for other colors.
In fact, we later saw some areas painted in mustard yellow.
Right now the yellow is just on some of the columns and the edge of the balcony.
Are you hoping for an escape room at CityWalk? Let us know in the comments.
