Reinvesting in the Grandeur of the Original Studio Entrance and Facilities
The original gate will be retained and complemented by a new streetscape design that embraces the rich tradition of the studio, featuring green walls, upgraded plantings and an improved sense of arrival.
Merging Historic Preservation with Green Design
The KCAL building, originally built for radio broadcasting in the 1930s, will become another focal point for Paramount Pictures, sharing atrium space with the studio’s new LEED-designed headquarters building to seamlessly merge the past with the present.
Extending the Original Marathon Street Through the Heart of the Studio
Marathon Street, which served as Paramount Pictures’ original street entrance will become Marathon Paseo. Located next to the original administration building, this internal pedestrian path will improve connectivity and create new outdoor gathering spaces for employees.
Adding capacity to our existing facilities with new state-of-the-art, technologically advanced soundstages with sophisticated climate control, lighting systems and adjacent production support offices will allow for greater efficiencies in filming to meet the demands of today’s and tomorrow’s production partners.
Basecamps & Improved Circulation
A series of basecamp areas which allow for the staging of trucks and trailers needed for talent, lighting, grip, costume and other production services, needs to be located adjacent to filming, whether on the lot or on location. As vehicles get larger and the number of trucks and trailers needed for basecamps continue to grow, improving circulation on the lot becomes critical to efficiencies and safety.
