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 475,500 square feet of sound stages; approximately 565,400 square feet of workshops, warehouses, and support uses; approximately 209,300 square feet of production and administrative offices; and approximately 35,600 square feet of catering and other specialty services. Upon completion, the campus would have an overall building area of approximately 1,285,800 square feet. Nineteen sound stages would be constructed in the central portion of the Project Site, south of Placerita Creek. A three-story office building and a four-story (five-level), 1,072-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 catering buildings 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.
