In Progress
The Evolution Plan is a long-term master plan for NBC/Universal studios, the largest working television and motion picture production studio in the world and one of Los Angeles’ leading family tourist destinations. The 25-year blueprint allows the company to shape a strong future for its business in a way that is compatible and consistent with a vision for a sustainable Los Angeles.

This project epitomizes smart urban infill development, takes this existing property from a .35 F.A.R. to an approximately .8 F.A.R., and introduces uses that are integrated with transit. The front lot along the western edge of the property will be enhanced with 600,000 sf of new office space 120,000 sf post production and support facilities, as well as added parking.
The studio will add two new soundstages, new rehearsal halls, production storage and support facilities, new film vaults, production bungalows and offices, new transportation garages and facilities, additional costume and prop warehouse, and will transform large portions of the existing outdoor set areas into more current and efficiently organized sets.
