Pinewood Atlanta Studios Reveals Plans for a Major Expansion

Pinewood Atlanta Studios has revealed plans for a 220,00 square-foot expansion, which will be completed in the spring of 2022.

Pinewood Atlanta announced the expansion on Thursday. The expansion includes a creative center, a four-story building to house content and tech companies. It will include a co-working space where businesses can meet, as well as private office spaces ranging from 1,800 to 14,600 square feet. “We are creating a place with abundant resources, where everyone, from filmmaking icons to first-time makers, feels that anything they imagine is possible to produce here,” said Frank Patterson, president and CEO of Pinewood Atlanta Studios. “Reactions from our current and prospective partners on the lot have been amazing, and we’re excited about how this next phase of development will help shape the future of the entertainment industry.” According to Variety, the current facility is a representation of $150 million in investments. The expansion will be an additional $65 million to $70 million. So far, Technicolor, The Third Floor and MBSi have claimed spaces in the newly created creative office center. “The demand for content continues to surge, as is evident in Atlanta’s booming production community, and we are excited to grow our footprint in Pinewood’s creative center,” said Massimo D’Avolio, chief operating officer of Technicolor Post Production. “By extending our global infrastructure and expertise further into Atlanta, it continues to enable our virtual growth as well, as we look at the next production workflows leveraging the cloud and enabling content creators to work more effortlessly from wherever production takes them.” Third Floor has plans to expand its place in Atlanta’s film industry with virtual production technology. “One of the first lessons we learned from supporting the most ambitious productions, such as Marvel Studios’ ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ is that it takes a village of creative and technical collaborators who are ready to apply their expertise efficiently and at a moment’s notice to support the director’s vision,” said Chris Edwards, co-founder, and CEO. “Pinewood Atlanta Studios’ creative office center encourages providers to synergize and offer end-to-end solutions that will benefit a much broader range of productions.” Pinewood Atlanta studios have expanded to more than 1 million square feet, 18 sound stages, and a 400-acre backlot. That said, the U.K. based Pinewood Group Limited sold its stake in Pinewood Atlanta to local venture partners, River’s Rock LLC. Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ both filmed in the Georgia production lot. The six-year-old facility, which is located in south of Atlanta, has 700 acres and more than 50 production-related businesses. The studio’s first movie was “Ant-Man” and the following sequel “Ant-Man and the Wasp”. Continue Reading:
