Official website



From Architectural Associates website:
A motion picture and television production studio containing seven sound stages, a scene mill, two three-story office buildings, 100,000 sf of two story wrap-around production offices with 'shooting fronts', a production services building and a vendor building all located on fourteen acres within a walled campus. The sound stages are 14,500 sf tilt-up concrete structures with 128' clear span and 30' clear height. This entire project was designed and coordinated by Architectural Associates using twenty-nine consulting firms in the United States and Canada.

A Canadian architects firm was employed to produce the working drawings to ensure compliance with North Vancouver building codes.
The Canadian construction firm Dominion was hired for the actual construction, with a build period of 13 months.

'21 Jump Street', 'Wiseguy' and 'Stingray' were filming on site four months before the construction work was completed. The end of the construction period was marked by three official grand opening parties in September 1989.
