Divergent Movie Set Update: More Images from The Abnegation Set

DivergentFans have been sending updates on the filming of The Divergent Movie set on Wells Street in downtown Chicago. What started out as a flat, open field of grass is now Abnegation. With 40 days of construction, this has been what has been created so far of the Abnegation sector. The images show a suburban village of 12 buildings and 4 half size gray half-size buildings.

Check out the latest images of the set provided by Divergent fans Anna Fox and Maggie Fox.  

They describe the village from the ground level.  "There were three rows of four houses and they looked like they were covered in something like cement as their paint.   It seems they haven't added any extra texture to the outside, just as If they painted right over the wood to keep the bumbs and grooves of the wood."  See the total transformation here.

In Divergent, the Abnegation sector is described below:

The roads where I live are still cracked and patchy, and it’s not safe to drive on them. 

On the streets near my house, I can see places where the yellow lines used to be. We have no use for them now that there are so few cars. We don’t need stoplights, either, but in some places they dangle precariously over the road like they might crash down any minute. [Tris's observations as she walks home from school]

The houses on my street are all the same size and shape. They are made of gray cement, with few windows, in economical, no-nonsense rectangles. Their lawns are crabgrass and their mailboxes are dull metal. To some the sight might be gloomy, but to me their simplicity is comforting.


I have to tilt my head back to see the top of the Hub, and even then, part of it disappears into the clouds. It is the tallest building in the city. I can see the lights on the two prongs on its roof from my bedroom window. [Tris about The Hub]

Over my left shoulder, orange light from the setting sun reflects off the glass buildings, and I can faintly see the rows of gray houses that used to be my home. [Tris on the train to Dauntless]

We can't help but wonder which house will be Prior's house. My guess is it is one of the houses on the last row closest to The Hub [Willis Tower].  Here is an older photo taken by Allison showing the view of The Hub from the field.

I think that it is dead on and I think when it is finished and when they add all the characters and story line it will be fantastic.
