Document Description
The Project Applicant proposes to develop a full-service film and television studio campus on the Project Site that would consist of approximately 473,000 square feet of sound stages; approximately 561,500 square feet of workshops, warehouses, and support uses; approximately 221,000 square feet of production and administrative offices; and approximately 37,500 square feet of catering and other specialty services. Upon completion, the campus would have an overall building area of approximately 1,293,000 square feet. Nine buildings, which would contain 19 sound stages, would be constructed in the central portion of the Project Site, south of Placerita Creek. A three-story office building and a five-level, 1,064-space parking structure that includes one subterranean level are proposed in the southwestern corner of the Project Site. In addition, a two-story support building would extend along the remaining portion of the western boundary (i.e., Railroad Avenue) of the Project Site, south of Placerita Creek. Other ancillary and specialty use buildings, including a catering building, gym building, and mechanical building with a substation, are located to the east and southeast of the main entrance at the intersection of Arch Street and 13th Street.
