The Wizarding World of Harry Potter's extension of Diagon Alley and London is quickly starting to become recognizable. The construction of this second half of the theme park, set to open this coming spring in 2014, is well underway. A few buildings, such as Number 12 Grimmauld Place, are starting to emerge from the scaffolding. Photos can bee seen here. SnitchSeeker posted: 

The expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley's London facade area is well underway, with the buildings starting to look more like they were featured in the film series, such as Number 12, Grimmauld Place. A few new photos from this weekend of the attraction at Universal Studios Florida, courtesy of the Orlando United forums, show the beginnings of the scratch coat placed on Grimmauld Place, on which the actual building's famous exterior will be placed in the coming months. Those images can be seen here.
Many thanks for SnitchSeeker for the heads up!

Wow. It would be nice if buildings like the Leaky Cauldron could actually have hotel rooms like in “real life” and The Burrow and Grimmauld Place would make fantastic bed and breakfasts. They could use the rooms in prize packages like Disney World uses the Cinderella Castle apartment.
