Amazon Expansion of Culver Studios Offers New Drawings

In late 2018, Hackman Capital Partners broke ground on a $620-million expansion of The Culver Studios, a 100-year-old film studio in Downtown Culver City. Six months later, new renderings have emerged providing a closer glimpse of the under-construction development – which will become the new home of Amazon’s Los Angeles area operations.

According to UrbanizeLA, The project will add 413,000 square feet of rentable space to the 14-acre campus – increasing its total footprint to more than 720,000 square feet. Plans also call for the construction of two parking structures, with total accommodations for 1,930 vehicles.

The design by Gensler employs building typologies common to film studios. Renderings show a series of contemporary mid-rise structures featuring metal exteriors and gabled roofs. The campus setting includes several terrace decks and landscaped interior pathways.

Amazon, which announced its move to The Culver Studios in late 2017, has also leased the entirety of the adjacent Culver Steps development, which is also being built by Hackman Capital Partners.  The combined 600,000 square feet of space will house Amazon subsidiaries Amazon Studios, IMDb, Amazon Video, and World Wide Advertising.
