The Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees has moved its West Coast headquarters a few miles east to Toluca Lake from Sherman Oaks after purchasing a building at 10045 Riverside Drive.
The union plans to take up permanent residence today in the facility for its West Coast representatives and staff. “Owning our own building puts the IATSE in the position of using our funds more wisely,” president Thomas C. Short said.
IATSE had been looking for a building since its 1995 convention, when a building fund was established. The org said the Toluca Lake location was selected because it made the most economic sense and noted that the new office lies in the heart of the film and television industry.
The purchase was completed following approval by the union’s General Executive Board. The new phone number for IATSE is (818) 980-3499; the fax number is (818) 980-3496.
The union said it will hold an open house at the new office at a later date.
