H’wood Center Studios sounds out new facils

$14 mil new Las Palmas site announced

Hollywood Center Studios, which has provided production and technical services since the silent film era, has announced plans for more than $14 million of new construction and facilities, including two 16,000-square-foot soundstages and 40,000 square feet of office space at its Las Palmas lot in Hollywood.

The new facilities will be available for rent later this summer. They’ll adjoin a three story, 25,000-square-foot production support building that provides two upper floors of offices and an extensive dressing room complex at stage level.

The stages will occupy land formerly used for parking at the studio along Santa Monica Boulevard at Seward Avenue.

Earlier this year, Hollywood Center acquired a three-acre parcel of land from the Dept. of Water and Power to accommodate parking and other uses displaced by the new stages.

The overall expansion involves $10 million in construction, $4 million in land acquisition and a quarter of a million dollars in fiber-optic design and installation.

In addition, a two story, 15,000-square-foot executive office building is being constructed next to Hollywood Center’s front gate on Las Palmas Avenue, and is scaled to integrate with the existing historic architecture bungalows dating from the 1920s.

Hollywood Center Studios provides a range of production services for film, television and multimedia.

The facility has also invested in high-capacity fiber-optic technology to provide the bandwidth necessary for future productions, Tim Mahoney, president of Hollywood Center Studios, said.
