East End Capital Plans 16 LA Soundstages – Commercial Observer


The influx of sound stages and content creation spaces in Los Angeles has reached the downtown arts district, where eastern capital plans to build a 720,400 square foot studio development.

Through a subsidiary Eastern Studios, the company today filed plans with the city to replace a pair of product warehouse buildings with 16 sound stages and Class A offices in four buildings on 15 acres at the corner of Sixth and Alameda streets. Soundstage space will total 321,520 square feet, along with 292,310 square feet of creative office space, 106,570 square feet of production support space, and 1,327 parking spaces.

Records show the East End paid $240million in May for the property at 1338 East 6th Street. The development will be the company’s fifth studio project, with four in the LA area now and one in New York.

“The existing and proposed amenities in the area, the sheer size of the property, and the billions of dollars of investment in nearby public transportation represented an unparalleled opportunity to bring desperately needed modern production space to Los Angeles,” Shep Wainwrightmanaging partner of East End Studios, said in a statement.

Architecture agency Grimshaw designed the campus.

“By taking a vertical approach to campus design, we’re freeing up valuable land for large studios and base camps while creating better foot and vehicular flow between the soundstages and the creative workspace,” Grimshaw said. Andrew Byrne said.

East End adds to the booming sound stage market as streaming platforms like Amazon Video and netflix build their catalogs and fight for subscriptions. For instance, Atlas Capital Group built 17 sound scenes and 212,300 square feet of old-style office space Los Angeles Time printing press, and Shadowbox Studios is currently building a 1.3 million square foot studio campus with 19 sound scenes in Santa Clarita.
