PI Update: Edison Detail

After a day of Florida chill, back in the 70's yesterday so let's cross this bridge one more time to beautiful Pleasure Island!
On the Island's largest construction project, only one thing is certain and that is the eastern most structure will be home to The Edison Orlando.
This old power plant circa 1901 previously provided power to the City of Disney Springs. Whether it will have a restaurant, bar, club, burlesque show, etc. like its downtown Los Angeles namesake remains to be seen.
This art deco structure is located where Adventurers Club outdoor staircase used to be, halfway between AC's entrance and BET Soundstage's entrance. What role it will serve also remains to be seen.
Around back, extensive work continues on The Edison Orlando here too.
Coupled with the mysterious adjoining performance arena (or club) next door where Soundstage used to stand plus the mysterious underground speakeasy spot beneath West End Plaza, there are many questions still needing answers.
