Amazon Studios to Expand, Relocate to Culver City

Amazon's L.A. entertainment groups are moving into the iconic Culver Studios, a site steeped in Hollywood history.

An announcement from Amazon indicates that the company will begin moving into the Culver Studios compound by the end of the year.

Amazon Studios' new 280,000-square-foot space on the Culver Studios lot will house the more than 700 Amazon employees now working in Santa Monica, as well as allowing "space for new jobs in a wide variety of roles, including creative, technical, marketing and legal", according to a statement from Amazon.

Cheng, who has served as COO of Amazon Studios since 2015, is reportedly leading the studio on an interim basis, following the departure of Roy Price. Amazon Studios COO Albert Cheng, a former digital exec at Disney-ABC, is now acting head of the group. "Most importantly, this new LA-based office will give us the much needed space for our team to work and grow so we can keep bringing Prime members the very best in series and movies".

Amazon did not respond to requests for comment on how many people it would hire for the studio. Overseen by architectural firm Gensler, the project will leave intact several historic bungalows and the studio's oldest and most recognizable building: a Colonial-style mansion modeled after George Washington's estate at Mount Vernon. In September, the Financial Times reported that Apple was interested in renting the property for its own film and television operation.

"Amazon's new Culver City offices will bring space for new jobs in a wide variety of roles, including creative, technical, marketing and legal", for Amazon Studios, IMDb, Amazon Video and World Wide Advertising, according to a company statement.
