Who’s Building L.A: Circa – Quixote North Valley Studios

PACOIMA

This was a first of its kind project for Pacoima’s well-located but aging industrial corridor in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.

Initially slated to be a vanilla tilt-up distribution warehouse, the project was “rescued” at the last minute by Quixote Studios and transformed into a 10-acre full-service Hollywood-style production campus with five sound stages, a mill, 20,000 square feet of creative office space, and significant off-street parking.

By working within the constraints of the already-approved plans for a new distribution warehouse, design firm HPA was able to make significant alterations without triggering a new review process. With a soaring glass facade and 40’ high walls, the main building dramatically elevates the quality of construction in the area. Additionally, Quixote took over an adjacent abandoned warehouse that was a magnet for gang activity and converted it to a mill to support the stages.
