LA North Acquires 5th Studio Building in SCV

After snagging the last available building at the IAC Commerce Center in January, LA North Studios has not slowed down in their drive to meet the fervent demand for production space. On Tuesday last week CBRE announced that the company has signed yet another long-term lease at the previous headquarters of MechanixWear Gloves. Just down the street from their most recent acquisition, this striking building adds 70,550 square feet of industrial space to their inventory. 

LA North Studios Continues Rapid Growth at IAC Commerce Center

The Santa Clarita Valley continues to grow its footprint of local production facilities, with Newmark Knight Frank (“NKF”) announcing Monday that LA North Studios signed a pre-lease for the final available building at the IAC Commerce Center. Expected to be ready in Q1 of 2022, Building 8 will add an additional 113,400 square feet to LA North's already substantial amount of production space. Film industry companies have been busier than ever during the spike in production the last few years, giving credit to SCV's moniker of "Hollywood North". There is no doubt that SCV is a happening location for filming, and with soundstage space at a premium, our region has added several more over the past years to accommodate the demand.

Importance of Shopping Local

As we approach the end of 2021, most of our businesses have re-opened, with events and gatherings restoring slowly but surely. We have come a long way since March 2020, and people are eager to return to as close to a pre-COVID normal as possible. There are unfortunately still lingering problems from the lockdown that continue to be felt. Especially by our local employers. With normal supply chains still facing big delays, it’s more important than ever to support the local businesses and manufacturers in the SCV this holiday season.
