The TVC 2050 Project is a comprehensive framework to expand and modernize the approximately 25-acre Television City studio (Project Site). This much-needed investment in Los Angeles’ most identifiable industry will create thousands of good-paying jobs and enable TVC to meet the growing demand for state-of-the-art production facilities, keeping productions in Los Angeles and reaffirming the city’s status as the creative capital of the world. The Project will also rehabilitate and preserve the integrity of the designated Historic Cultural Monument on-site.
TVC 2050 embraces architect William Pereira’s original design which focused on flexibility and adaptability, and ultimately called for the eventual development of additional sound stages and multi-story office buildings. This Project follows Pereira’s futuristic vision, allowing the studio to accommodate new technologies, meet evolving industry demands, and foster growth of media production in Los Angeles.
The Project would beautify the public realm through streetscape improvements and enhance the pedestrian experience. These improvements include widened sidewalks, curated landscaping, lighting, wayfinding signage, and pedestrian amenities such as shade structures. Along all street edges, pedestrian access and safety would be improved in accordance with city-wide Vision Zero standards.
Additionally, the Project will include an on-site Mobility Hub to encourage multi-modal transit. These include employee and visitor use of public transportation, carpooling, vanpooling, and biking/scootering to work, and other transportation demand management (TDM) strategies. TVC 2050 would also contribute toward transportation systems management (TSM) improvements within the Project area.
