Amazon Studios has revealed it will move to the Culver Studios, a 280,000-square foot TV and movie studio with historical connections.
The core building (the ‘Mansion House’) and its associated bungalow-style offices as well as the studio buildings were home in the past to Cecil B De Mille (and where much of Gone With the Wind was filmed) RKO Pathé, David O Selznick and the I Love Lucy home of Desilu Productions. More recently it has housed Sony Pictures Television.
Amazon says its new Culver City offices will bring space for new jobs in a wide variety of roles including creative, technical, marketing and legal.
“We are very excited about being a part of 100 years of movie and TV history at The Culver Studios,” said Albert Cheng, Head of Amazon Studios. “Most importantly, this new LA-based office will give us the much-needed space for our team to work and grow so we can keep bringing Prime Members the very best in series and movies.”
Currently owned by an affiliate of Hackman Capital Partners, Amazon’s new office will be located at 9336 West Washington Boulevard in Culver City, California. Amazon currently employs more than 700 people in Santa Monica, CA and will begin moving into the new office space at the end of this year.
