Universal Studios Hollywood's Evolution Plan clears another hurdle

Universal Studios Hollywood logo
Universal Studios Hollywood is set to add several major new attractions to its theme park as part of the Evolution Plan.

The Los Angeles City Council has approved a development agreement with Universal Studios Hollywood, moving the studio's $1.6 billion Evolution Plan another step closer to reality.

The Los Angeles Planning Commission had previously recommended approval for the plan, which will see both production facilities and the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park undergo a major expansion. The breakthrough came after Universal Studios Hollywood's owner, NBCUniversal, agreed in July to drop plans to build a new residential community on part of the studio's backlot.

The proposal to install housing had proved controversial, with local residents having claimed that it would strain local facilities to breaking point. Instead, Universal will now install additional production facilities, as well as a number of new theme park attractions.

The revised proposals will see two new hotels installed on the property, reflecting Universal Studios Hollywood's expectations of increased demand when the park opens its own version of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Further details of the proposed updates to Universal Studios Hollywood can be found on the NBCUniversal Evolution plan website.
