LA North Studios Leases 70k sf Valencia Facility for Conversion to Sound Stage Space


LA North Studios inked a lease for a 70.6k sf industrial building in Valencia. LA North is an independent full-service film and television studio founded in 2019 by Anthony Syracuse and John Prabhu. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The building, located at 28525 Witherspoon Pkwy, is built on roughly 5.4 acres and features 28-foot minimum ceiling heights, 1,600 amps of power and a large fenced rear yard area. The property will be repurposed to film and television sound stages and will include space for production support and offices.

The facility, featuring an expansive glass and concrete façade, was previously the long-time corporate headquarters for MechanixWear Gloves. The property, owned by Desert Orchard LLC and Golden Westminster Investments, is part of the master-planned Valencia Commerce Center and within the entertainment industry’s 30-mile zone. The new location benefits from its proximity to Los Angeles’ core entertainment hubs such as Burbank and Hollywood.

This latest lease transaction will bring LA North Studios’ total footprint in the region to more than 460k sf with five production campuses across Los Angeles County.

“This is a dramatic and modern building with features that make it ideal for us to develop and use as a high-end studio,” commented John Prabhu, co-founder of LA North Studios. “When this facility comes online in the next couple of months, we’ll have just under a half million square feet of production space in the region and 15 soundstages.”

“One has to identify and conceptualize the right property when it comes to selecting a production campus,” said Anthony Syracuse, co-founder of LA North Studios. “LA North Studios has established a discerning model based upon experience and needs for constructing sound stages that meet the demands of production. By converting industrial buildings into F-1 Certified stages, we’re able to deliver highly functional, cost-efficient stages in substantially less time than purpose-built facilities.”

CBRE’s Craig Peters and Sam Glendon helped facilitate the transaction. According to Peters, LA North Studios is on a very short list of groups that are actually delivering stages to a market that is starved for this type of space.
