DreamWorks Animation is bulking up its Northern California studio.
The Glendale-based company behind the "Shrek" and "Madagascar" movies on Thursday unveiled a new 200,000-square-foot headquarters for its PDI animation facility in Redwood City.
The new campus overlooking San Francisco Bay is one-third larger than the previous one (at the same location) and has an on-site clinic for a doctor's office and nutritionist, a larger cafe and more outdoor space with gas heaters "to permit hanging outside year-round." It also has a giant topiary of the company's Moonboy, just like in Glendale.
"DreamWorks Animation employees in Redwood City now have a home that complements the outstanding quality of their work, " CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg said. "This new building was designed not only to give them the best tools in the world but also an exceptional and unique work environment."
