On April 16, 2018, Line 204,
one of Los Angeles’ top boutique studio and production rental companies, was
approved by the 2nd District Court of Appeal to break ground on the largest
studio complex to be built in the Los Angeles area in close to three decades.
The brand-new facility will be an important addition to the local entertainment
industry, as the project will help meet a growing demand for high-quality
soundstages in the Los Angeles area. Line 204 is scheduled to break ground on
the project in September 2018 with a slated completion date of fall 2019.
“Line 204 is excited to build Los Angeles the
most top-of-the line studio complex that the entertainment industry has seen.
We’re building a greener, more customizable campus for modern day production
from the ground up. ” said Alton Butler, Chief Executive of Line 204. “We’ll be
reducing the carbon footprint and creating more flexible spaces, making it that
much more attractive to television and motion picture projects.”
To design the state-of-the art studio complex, Line 204 acquired
Bastien and Associates, Inc., who has built top film, television and broadcast
studios all over the world. The 240,000-square-foot complex will be built on a
10-acre site in the heart of Sun Valley, a desirable location that’s less than
15 minutes from Hollywood Burbank Airport and 30 minutes from Hollywood. The
facility will feature two buildings inclusive of 10 genuine soundstages,
production offices and 550 parking spaces. The
complex will be a viable destination for television and motion picture projects
with design quality and amenities that depart significantly from the barren
warehouse model prevalent in the industry. Butler has spent the last few
years polling people in the entertainment industry about what they are looking
for in a desirable studio and soundstage space to ensure that Line 204 is
designing the best facility possible with the most high-quality design and
equipment available today.
With the assistance of California’s Film & Television
Tax Credit Program 2.0 and the increase of on-demand and streaming content, the
City of Los Angeles has recently seen a boom in local production. Due to this
growth, there is a demand for high-quality soundstages in the Los Angeles
area. Line 204’s new facility will offer
more filming opportunities for the growing industry, as well as assist in
keeping production and jobs in Los Angeles rather than going to competing
cities, such as Vancouver and Atlanta.
Details on the groundbreaking ceremony for Line 204’s Sun Valley complex
will be announced later this summer.
