Entertainment firm to occupy 60,166 SF of space at Santa Monica Gateway

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20, 2017JLL announced today that it has negotiated a 60,166-square-foot lease with Lionsgate Entertainment at Santa Monica Gateway, a newly developed, Class A, two-building, 200,000-square-foot creative office campus located at 2834 Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica, California.  Lionsgate will occupy the space for its newly acquired STARZ, relocating from Beverly Hills, California.

Completed in August 2017 by Colorado Creative Studios, LLC, Santa Monica Gateway is ideally located in the epicenter of "Silicon Beach," the premier hub for the media and entertainment industry.  It is within a short walking distance to the Expo Line, Riot Games, HULU, HBO, Red Bull, Oracle, and the Grammys among others. The LEED certified campus features creatively designed concrete, glass and metal structures above a three-level subterranean garage with 640 single space stalls with secured direct access to tenant floors. Santa Monica Gateway also offers 100 Gigabits Per Second broadband internet service, the fastest, least expensive and most reliable available in Santa Monica and Los Angeles.

JLL's team of Carl Muhlstein, Tom Cherry, Hayley Blockley and Nick Niemann represented the Colorado Creative Studios LLC in the lease.  Lionsgate was represented by James Travers and Lawson Martin of Travers Cresa.  Santa Monica Gateway is able to accommodate a variety of requirements up to 134,000 square feet.

"Lionsgate chose Santa Monica Gateway because of its proximity to its headquarters and other major media companies," said Muhlstein. "The project is the ideal location for companies looking for space in a newly developed creative office campus in the heart of Silicon Beach."

Muhlstein added "Companies continue to prefer Santa Monica over neighboring submarkets because of its amenities, transportation infrastructure and access to skilled labor."
