A Culver City mobile game developer is doubling its footprint in the city.

Jam City Inc. signed a 40,000-square-foot office lease at 3526 Eastham Drive, directly across the street from its old headquarters at 3525 Eastham Drive where it leased 17,500 square feet, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal.

The landlord is Pas Trust of Beverly Hills, which bought the studio in 1998 for $2.2 million, according to property records. The property includes two single-story buildings that together span 73,100 square feet. Jam City’s new space was previously occupied by the Disney-owned company Maker Studios.

The property is located in the Hayden Tract area, about a 20 minute walk from Downtown Culver City and a 15 minute stroll from the Metro Expo Line’s Culver City station. It’s not far from where MedMen Enterprises signed a lease in June for 18,000 square feet. The now-public marijuana dispensary business has 800 employees and 18 licensed facilities in California, Nevada, and New York.

A wave of office development has washed over Culver City in recent years. Some of those projects are coming online now. Leasing has kept up thanks to strong demand from tech and media companies. Just a few months after opening, for example, Runyon Group had nearly filled up its mixed-use Platform development a few blocks away from the Eastham Drive location.

That’s also driven multifamily trades and development. Notable projects filed this year include ESI Ventures’ 52-unit project there and David Neman’s 80-unit development on the edge of neighboring Palms. [LABJ] – Dennis Lynch
