To the immediate north of LC-36, Blue is building a BE-4 test stand at LC-11. The stand will use the same liquid methane and liquid oxygen (LOX) systems as the launch complex.Renders released by Blue Origin suggest that the stand will have two bays – meaning they can work on two engines at once.
Blue Origin have made a few small changes to the LC-36 launch site layout since the earlier plans posted above. On Friday new plans were submitted to St Johns River Water Management District.Link: https://permitting.sjrwmd.com/epermitting/jsp/Search.do?theAction=searchDetail&permitNumber=159009Single sheet drawings for the overall site plan dated 24 Jan 2019 (earlier submission) and 23 Jul 2019 (current application) are attached. These are vector graphics so you can zoom-in to your heart's content!For fun I produced an animated GIF comparing the two (click to animate). Keys to the numbered items are in the pdfs.
Blue has also started construction on their south campus:https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/dorian/index.html#18/28.50415/-80.67703
Blue Origin's new orbital launch site was imaged during NOAA's post-Dorian survey. I took a screenshot of that and overlayed the plans for the site on it. @NASASpaceflight @ChrisG_NSF @EmreKelly

Lots of progress on #BlueOrigin's Launch Complex 36, right next to the Lighthouse on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. So many large cranes! #KennedySpaceCenter @NASAKennedy
Blue Origin Launch Complex 36 has cornered the market on cranes. Work on the New Glenn facility is progressing on the integration building and water tower. The Space Coast skyline is always changing. #BlueOrigin
Time lapse of ongoing construction of the water tower and integration facility at #BlueOrigin's New Glenn launch pad, LC-36 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Taken from the Exploration Tower in Port Canaveral, this video covers about 1.5 hours from 1:30-3:00pm.
Much progress on Blue Origin's Launch Complex 36 at Cape #blueorigin #KennedySpaceCenter
Couple of more
Launch Complex 36 is moving along. I can't wait to see @blueorigin New Glenn launch from the tip of Cape Canaveral. The watertower makes the lighthouse look tiny in comparison.
