Hollywood Center Studios

BUSINESS
February 19, 2014 | By Roger Vincent
One of Los Angeles' longtime developers is betting big on the revival of Hollywood as he launches work on a $138-million speculative office development near Santa Monica Boulevard. After dusting off plans for an office complex first conceived before the 2008 recession brought development to a halt, Jerry Snyder has begun construction of his 959 Seward project, even though he has no tenants lined up. Snyder, who has been in the real estate business since 1949, thinks demand is strong enough among businesses in creative fields such as entertainment to justify the risk of building a campus-style complex catering primarily to them in a part of Hollywood known as the Media District.

A Woodland Hills developer has found an unusual way to make money from idle warehouses in Valencia: He rents them to Hollywood producers who have used the buildings to film everything from "A-Team" episodes to "Remington Steele." The arrangement brings Saunders Development Co. $1,200 to $2,000 a day for a vacant building, far more than rentals to industrial or commercial customers.
