If Hollywood is the heart of the film industry, Culver City is its heartbeat. Home to multiple movie studios packed into its five square miles, it houses Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, National Public Radio, Sony Pictures Entertainment and the NFL Network. Past studios and notable businesses have included Culver Studios, Hal Roach Studios, MGM, RKO Pictures, Desilu Productions and Howard Hughes’ Hughes Aircraft Company where the Spruce Goose was constructed. Hundreds of movies and television series have been made here including The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, Air Force One, ET, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Nanny. With so many employed by the film industry and tourists who enjoy seeing the studios, shopping, restaurants and the Art District are always busy.
Quietly offered in a non-advertised pocket listing, this office building has such stunning contemporary style that it could easily be used as a movie set in its own right. Directly across the street from Sony Pictures and not much more than a stone’s throw from other studios, the location can’t be beat for a company in an associated business or any company that enjoys being in the middle of the action where the pulse of the film industry is easily taken.
The building was constructed in 1923, renovated in 1993 and extensively renovated in 2012 by famed architect Paul McClean of McClean Design. Measuring at approximately 8,672 square feet of office space, the building is sited on approximately 0.21 acres of land.
The exterior and front façade were finished using white Carrera marble, which is carried through the interior of the building and onto the second floor exterior patio bar and oversized fire pit. The extensive use of marble is continued throughout the building’s interior, which covers the library fireplace, conference room and offices. The interior floors combine a mix of limestone and walnut. Other highlights include a 250-gallon saltwater fish tank and a custom temperature controlled 500-bottle wine cellar with room to entertain.
There are ten private offices, a large glass conference room, a sophisticated and comfortable executive office and a garage which will park four cars and has an electric vehicle charging station. There is a 1,000-square-foot landscaped deck with firepit and bar, four executive-style bathrooms and one with shower. Twenty-five additional parking spaces convey in the sale in a nearby lot for employees. Co-listing agents are Craig Knizek of The Agency and Jennifer Frisk and Ryan Harding of Newmark Knight Frank.
Showstopping office building located directly across from Sony Studios, close to 20th Century Fox and Silicon Beach. Priced at $10 million.
