Scopely is doubling down in Culver City.

The mobile games developer has leased a 60,000-square-foot property that will become part of Runyon Group’s Platform project once completed, according to an announcement.

That’s more than double the amount of space it currently occupies at 3530 Hayden Avenue, located in the Hayden Tract area of Culver City.

Scopely is designing its new spaces alongside Runyon, led by Joseph Miller and David Fishbein. Its office is scheduled to be completed by late next year.

Runyon opened the mixed-use Platform project, which spans 130,000 square feet, in 2016. Its new four-story structure, located at 8888 Washington Boulevard, will add 60,000 square feet of office space, fully leased by Scopely, and another 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail to the project.

Jacob Bobek of CBRE represented Scopely. Runyon represented itself, CBRE said in a release.

The entertainment company recently had a breakthrough year, thanks to its new games, “Star Trek Fleet Command” and “Looney Tunes World of Mayhem.” It also recently wrapped a $160 million Series C funding round, bringing its total funding up to $250 million since its founding in 2011.

Its expansion in Culver City comes as media and entertainment companies flock to that area. Earlier this month, HBO closed a 240,000-square-foot lease at Ivy Station complex. The network is relocating from Santa Monica once the $350 million project wraps construction.
