The Culver Studios


The industry-treasured film and television studio is embarking on a celebrated transformation, more than doubling its size.

Amazon Studios

Amazon Studios will occupy approximately 530,000 square feet at The Culver Studios, including the company’s existing space in the historic Mansion and bungalows.



Completed in April 2018, Phase 1 of The Innovation Plan was carefully undertaken to preserve the lot’s historic structures. The Mansion was retrofitted and four landmark bungalows were restored and relocated to be just behind it.


The Innovation Plan


Located in Culver City, California, The Culver Studios is one of the entertainment industry’s most treasured independent film and television studios. Originally built in 1918 by silent movie pioneer Thomas Ince, The Culver Studios has been home to some of the most famous productions in Hollywood history, including Citizen Kane and E.T.

Hackman Capital Partners is embracing the studio’s star-studded legacy with an Innovation Plan to completely modernize the lot—more than doubling its size—for next-generation entertainment. All while preserving the site’s historic structures.

When fully developed, The Culver Studios will total 720,850 square feet—including the Mansion and bungalows, five brand new buildings, totaling 500,000 square feet, and two parking structures with 1930 spaces. All in all, the campus will offer 619,850 square feet of creative office and state-of-the-art production support space, 96,263 square feet of stages, and 4,736 square feet of stage support space.

Construction on the site is currently underway and is slated for final completion in Spring 2021.
