Amazon Studios Moving to Santa Monica Digs
Amazon Studios has closed escrow on new offices in Santa Monica's Water Garden, according to insiders. The online retailer's entertainment unit, which debuted the first three episodes of its original series Alpha House on Nov. 15, has been operating out of small offices at the Sherman Oaks Galleria.
But soon it will join CBS Television Distribution, Sony and Beats Electronics on the 17-acre Westside campus.
New York-based IA Interior Architects, which has designed Amazon's offices nationwide, reportedly is designing the space, which one source says could encompass more than 100,000 square feet. Reps for CBRE, which manages The Water Garden property, declined comment.
