    L.A. greenlights Disney production facility

    Los Angeles County Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to allow the construction of a major high-tech television and film production facility on a sprawling ranch near Santa Clarita that Walt Disney chose as a backdrop for many of his studio’s productions.

    The proposal by Walt Disney Co.'s Disney/ABC unit would develop 58 acres of the 890-acre Golden Oak Ranch in the northwestern portion of the county, adding more than a half-million square feet of studio space, multiple sound stages, writers’ bungalows and other developments in Placerita Canyon.

    Overall it seems like a small section of the total property, but as it has been, mostly open land with a few buildings and sets. This will bring full sound stages and offices. I wonder if they will try to hide them in a corner of the property.

    They will camouflage them by building them into a giant mountain range shaped like Cadillac tail fins.

    Disney's Burbank property has always been too small. The film incentive / Hollywood defection issues aside, this is a brilliant and high use of that property. Having a bunch of open space on their P&L, making pennies per acre, is a poor use of the land.

    Surprised they didn't do it before.

    Warner Bros. has always had a hate-hate relationship with their "ranch" because of logistics when working between the main studio and the second property, which is only blocks away from the main gate. They've updated the Warner Bros Ranch to be more self-sufficient, and I suspect Disney took a page from this playbook.

    Good choice.
