Meeting Future Demand
Studio Design and Development
Today’s entertainment production spending is anticipated to reach $759 billion in the U.S. and $2.2. trillion globally by 2021—and with a shortage of studio facilities, demand is exceeding supply. Hackman Capital Partners and The MBS Group are working to meet that demand by expanding and modernizing existing studio lots, transforming industrial properties into studios and media campuses, as well as building new studio campuses from the ground up.
With comprehensive experience in all areas of development, the platform’s leadership team has been responsible for the design and construction of more than 25 purpose-built studios, including 115 sound stages and ancillary support space, representing over 3,500,000 square feet and $2 billion in value.
