BlueStar Studios will open next summer in Forest Park. The studio will house 600,000 square feet of production and office space and 18 have sound stages, each from 5,000 to 40,000 square feet.
The old Fort Gillem headquarters will be at the center of the campus, convenient to both downtown Atlanta and the airpost.
The plan is to open next summer with construction and development continuing in phases through 2024. Financing was originated for phase-one construction by Gala Media Group, a division of Peachtree Group.
The $180 million 53 acre campus is but the latest project set to address the high demand for studio space in the state of Georgia. The demand for content, already high before the pandemic, has surged tremendously and shows no sigh of abating. Efforts are being made to preserve as much of the old fort’s 1940’s architectire as possible.
