Located in Los Angeles, Sunset Gower is one of the largest independent film production studios in the US, providing stage, support and office space, as well as ancillary services to its tenants. Sunset Gower's operations include significant real estate holdings (15 acre site in a primary entertainment location) in which capital could be invested and value-add services added. GI's strategy was to rationalize outparcels, optimize the existing footprint through ongrounds development, provide assistance with financings, and introduce new strategic services to enhance cash flow.
