Panorama Brooklyn, a new film production studio, located in Columbia Heights, in the former Watchtower Headquarters was announced by developer CIM.
The 90,000 square foot studio and production space has many natural backdrops such as buildings from the 1930's and 40's, rooftop gardens and magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline.
The 5 building complex was purchased in 2016 by CIM, LIVWRK and Kushner Companies from the Jehovah's Witnesses. Kushner Companies sold their stake in the buildings shortly thereafter.
With the onset of the Corona virus pandemic, filling the space with tenants was almost impossible for landlords.
CIM is positioning the studio/production space as an anchor for plans to turn the vacant development into “a hub of creativity and collaboration transforming the 5 building interconnected complex into an engaging vertical village”.
In 2018, CIM had to face off against the Buildings Department to be able to erect a new message of “Welcome” replacing the Watchtower sign, which replaced the even earlier “Squib” sign.
