LNR Property Corp., the nation’s most expansive home builder and the corporation behind the future of the Southfield Community, a $1.5 million project the largest of its kind happening in Mass, kicked the month off hosting a Fall festival on October 2nd with hayrides, chowder and live music. Hundreds were in attendance enjoying pints of beer and flirting with the idea of buying a new home in the hyped community.
In July LNR was granted a $45 million in state and federal stimulus to start making this project a reality. Rumors continue to linger about the proposed $147 million motion picture complex which would be in the center of the hip community referred to as “Southfield Studios” expected to create more than 1,200 temporary construction jobs and an additional 1,500 movie-industry jobs is seeing some bright light.
Local Film and Television advocate Curtis Rand of the South Shore was among the festival attendees and told us, “LNR will be announcing who will do the infrastructure soon for the whole project”. He also tells us that, “The Studio has three financial firms that are willing to commit to the project”.
Southfield Studios is a proposed 600,000 square foot all-inclusive Hollywood-style complex where movies, television, music videos and more will be supported by state-of-the art equipment. Once a base that soiled live bombs, rockets and torpedoes, the former military base will slowly be transitioned into a community of new homes, retail stores, and with our fingers crossed, a Hollywood East studio.
