Last week NBC Universal sent a letter to local resident of Studio City, Ca announcing their new plans to expand their theme park. In the letter, which reads like somewhat of a concession speech, NBC Universal states that:
During the process, a number of comments were received from the community, as well as City and County officials. In response, we have agreed to move forward with the Evolution Plan that eliminates the residential component, and focuses our 20-year plan on our core business — production and tourism.
As you can plainly see on the map above, NBC Universal was planning to build 2,937 residential units on their 391 acres of land, in hopes to remain competitive in the future. Perhaps this exclusive housing would be for key employees and executives in NBC Universal upper echelon? We’ll probably never know.
However, it does seem that local residents and officials opposed that expansion strategy for reasons unknown to us at this time. In response to keeping the peace NBC Universal has decided to expand theme park, tourism and production facilities as an alternative.
Here is what this new strategy will offer the community instead.
- By investing $1.6 billion in it’s facilities, this will stimulate local economic growth.
- As a result, over 30,000 new jobs will be created locally.
- This will bring $100 million in local traffic and transit upgrades, to improve the quality of the local tourism and community.
