Hudson Pacific Properties and Blackstone have announced plans to build Sunset Glenoaks Studios, a 240,000-square-foot studio space in Sun Valley. The project represents a total investment of $170 million to $190 million. The project is already fully entitled and is expected to deliver in the third quarter 2023.
