Ex­pan­sion Un­der Way for Cul­ver Stu­dios

Variety - - Dirt - PAT SAPER­STEIN

Cul­ver Stu­dios has bro­ken ground on its large-scale ren­o­va­tion, with Ama­zon Stu­dios signed up for 70% of the prop­erty. Own­ers Hack­man Cap­i­tal Part­ners will en­large the com­plex from 358,000 square feet to more than 720,000 square feet, in­clud­ing sound­stages and of­fices. Founded in 1918 by pro­ducer Thomas Ince, the stu­dio has housed pro­duc­tions in­clud­ing “Gone With the Wind” and “Cit­i­zen Kane.” The ren­o­vated stu­dios will pre­serve the Colo­nial man­sion and five bun­ga­lows from the orig­i­nal Ince Stu­dios. Five new of­fice build­ings and two new park­ing struc­tures will pro­vide plenty of space for Ama­zon em­ploy­ees, who will oc­cupy 530,000 square feet of the to­tal Cul­ver Stu­dios space. Hack­man re­cently bought CBS Tele­vi­sion City for $750 mil­lion.
