Amazon is making moves beyond the grocery business. The e-commerce giant’s TV and film production arm is moving into the so-called “Gone with the Wind” mansion on the Culver Studios lot.
Amazon Studios will take over the mansion as well as several bungalows on the lot, Deadline reported. The company was widely rumored to be leaving its Santa Monica headquarters, having outgrown the space.
Neither Amazon nor Culver Studios confirmed the move.
The 48,000-square-foot mansion at 9336 W. Washington Boulevard dates back to 1918 and has been converted to office space.
Hackman Capital Partners, a real estate investment firm, purchased the historic studios for $85 million in 2014. [Deadline] — Cathaleen Chen
