The construction on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been inching further higher over the past several months but a special milestone was hit yesterday when the construction reached its topping off point. The highest point of the construction was put into place giving us an idea as to the final height of the massive new mountainscape that will be springing up over the back of Disneyland come 2019.
Construction teams installed the highest steel beam capping off the infrastructure for a 130-foot-tall rock spire, the highest point in the new land. Quite massive in itself, it won’t be the tallest peak in Disneyland though. At the other side of the park, the Matterhorn Mountain stands a formiddable 147 feet tall.
Once completed, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will include approximately 10,000 tons of structural steel and approximately 200,000 square feet of hand-carved rockwork. The same 14-acre land also is under construction at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Both are scheduled to open in 2019.
