America’s largest independent studio owner is back at it.

Developer Hudson Pacific Properties filed plans with the city on Dec. 6 revealing details of its latest vision for the historic Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood, Curbed reported.

The firm plans to demolish approximately 160,600 square feet of existing buildings at the 16-acre campus at 6050 W. Sunset Boulevard while adding 628,000 square feet of production space, according to the filing.

Since opening in 1918, the studio has been used to film such classics as “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” and “Golden Girls ” to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Scandal.”

Hudson Pacific acquired the campus in 2007 for roughly $200 million, property records show. It currently houses a six-story building created for Technicolor, 12 sound stages, 368,000 square feet of remodeled office space and other amenities including a rooftop movie screen and Helen Cavalo’s Food & Bounty commissary.

The Hollywood developer currently has plenty of projects on its plate. It’s also developing the Epic, a 15-story creative office building at 5901 Sunset Boulevard. Hudson Pacific also owns the Sunset Bronson Studios, Sunset Las Palmas Studios and the 14-story Icon building at 5800 Sunset, which is fully leased to Netflix. [Curbed] — Natalie Hoberman
