OA has a tremendous amount of pragmatism and as a business is very diversified. But not a push the envelope kind.

Not to derail, but that must be answered. Orbital pushed every bit of the envelope there was to get started and keep running. History is littered with well meant attempts like Conestoga, Kelly, Pioneer, RRC, and Kistler that did not make it, but OSC did, and they didn't have a bazillionaire helping them do it, which also doesn't guarantee success (Beale). There was nothing conservative about an air launched booster with winglets. I think they still have enough of that spirit to stay competitive. They paved the way for the newer space companies.

The frame of the first building has been erected. This is probably the manufacturing annex.

The photos from the SpaceKSC blog are not loading for me.  Does anyone else have them?

The sizing of these buildings, especially entrances may give a clue to size of New Armstrong. Unless they plan for a whole new facility for NA.

Great to see new space-related construction against a beautiful blue sky especially from sitting under a gloomy-grey one today in the NE.
