The Oprah Winfrey Network, now based in Los Angeles, plans to move into its new headquarters before the end of this year — an OWN Network spokesman told the Hollywood Reporter. Relocating to the former site once called the Warner Hollywood Studios – The Lot gives the fledging OWN Network access to on-the-lot production facilities, something they’ve been wanting since the deal fell through to occupy a once rumored build-to-suit studio and office complex at
959 Seward St. The Lot Studio sits on 11 acres with seven classic sound stages, it’s own modern commissary, old historic office buildings and plenty of postproduction facilities.
More modern office space is planned at The Lot, said Shaul Kuba, founding principal of CIM Group, owner of the property.. Years ago the CIM group revealed plans that where once ok’d by the city of West Hollywood to significantly build up The Lot by tearing down old and antiquated office space. Apparently those plans were overly ambitious and word is that although CIM will continue to develop the property the size and scoop of it’s plans have been pared down.
