The trend continues... This time on the north side.

Movie Studio Proposed for I-85 and Jimmy Carter Boulevard Site - Peachtree Corners, GA Patch

Southeast's Largest Movie Studio Planned for Gwinnett Site - MyAJC


Excerpt from the AJC
Quote:
The developer behind Midtown’s Atlantic Station is planning to build the Southeast’s largest movie studio in Gwinnett County.
The new project is the latest of at least five major movie and television studio developments or expansions announced in Georgia this year, begging the question of whether the state could end up with too many moviemaking facilities.

Whoops! It's hard to keep track of all of these studios.

Where's the thread? I'd like to see what people here think but I cant find it. I only see the Pinewood thread and the studio in McDonough thread.

Metro Projects opening in 2013/2014 It's here but it is a huge project so no harm in having it's own thread.

I work very close to there. Traffic around that area is already ridiculous. I would personally not build a movie studio in that area until the entire interchange and off-ramps/on-ramps were improved.

They are redoing it. It will be a diverging diamond. Also, rail should be going there eventually.

Is this a done deal, or may it still fall through?

Let's hope Gwinnett is REAL in its pursuit of rail-based transit.

It could definitely fall through. It's a very lofty proposal with no actual movie people behind it as far as I know, just developers.

Is this in line with how movie studios are generally built?

I thought they were generally built by the actual movie studio companies, not build by private investors and then leased out. If you just build studios by speck, isn't there a chance that no studios will be interested in shooting in your studio?

Maybe I'm wrong, but it is, after all called "Universal Studios," not "Studios Built By Private Investor But Leased Out By Universal."
