The sponsor, Deep South Studios LLC, is represented by Henri M. Kessler and Eric Michael Anton of Marcus & Millichap's Global Capital Division.
The facility's primary utilities are operational, and three buildings are functional and generating revenue. The site is wholly authorized and ready for development. Two production offices, six sound stages varying in size from 16,500 to 30,000 sq. ft., and vendor buildings totaling 99,000 sq. ft. will form the project.
