Regal Mile Film Studios a “State-of-the-art” media campus aims to open in fall 2024 near 79th Street and Stony Island Avenue.
The $100 million Regal Mile Studios project will bring a 380,000-square foot, “state-of-the-art media campus” to vacant properties at 1431-1525 E. 77th St. and on the 7700 blocks of South Blackstone, South Chicago, Harper, and Stony Island avenues. The project will include 220,000 square feet of film studio space.
City Council gave the project the green light in July 2021, unanimously approving a zoning change for the properties.
The main site is organized around a central internal portion that acts as open flex space, offering an internal outdoor yard for staging and access for staff.
Placed around this central area, three studio buildings each measure 20,000 sf with 40 feet interior clear height space for filming and set building.
Located out from the studio structures are attached office spaces. Rising 28 feet, the two-story portions will face the street, blocking views of the taller 52-feet tall studio enclosures. The office portions are faced with lively facades that face the neighborhood.
URB, inc. will post updates are they become available.
