Document Description
The Radford Studio Center Project (Project) entails the continuation of the existing studio use and the modernization and expansion of Radford Studio Center (Project Site) through the proposed Radford Studio Center Specific Plan (Specific Plan). The Project includes the development of up to approximately 1,667,010 square feet of new sound stage, production support, production office, creative office, and retail uses within the Project Site as well as associated ingress/egress, circulation, parking, landscaping, and open space improvements. The proposed Specific Plan would allow up to 2,200,000 square feet of total floor area within the Project Site upon buildout of the Project (inclusive of 532,990 square feet of existing uses to remain). Proposed new buildings could range in height from approximately 60 feet to up to 135 feet. A total of approximately 6,050 vehicular parking spaces (including approximately 2,170 existing vehicular parking spaces to remain) would be provided within the Project Site at full buildout of the total floor area permitted under the proposed Specific Plan. As part of the Project, approximately 646,120 square feet of existing uses would be removed and approximately 532,990 square feet of existing uses would remain. In addition, the Project includes open space and landscaping improvements to enhance the public realm along all Project Site frontages and maximizes public access to the Los Angeles River and Tujunga Wash. Specifically, approximately 109,569 square feet of open space would be provided along the Project Site frontages, including approximately 77,406 square feet of open space along the Los Angeles River and Tujunga Wash frontages, approximately 4,454 square feet of open space along Colfax Avenue, and approximately 27,709 square feet along Radford Avenue. Additional open space and landscaping would be provided within the Project Site, including various ground level open space areas and rooftop terraces. A Sign District would also be established to permit studio-specific on-site signs.
