Hackman Capital Partners is building London’s largest film and television production center in Dagenham, East London. Plans include up to 12 sound stages three acres of backlot, offices and ancillary space, totaling over half a million square feet.
The investment also includes an endowment to maximize local jobs, placements, apprenticeships, community outreach and supply chain opportunities.
Eastbrook Studios London will be a major boost for the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham, the City of London and the UK entertainment industry at large, creating an estimated 1,200 jobs, contributing £35m per year to the local economy and inspiring more development into thriving East London.
The UK is one of the most sought after countries in the world for major feature film and high-end television production, with more than £3.6B spent last year. The Dagenham site will add much needed sound stage capacity to the overall industry.
Filming at Eastbrook s under construction now and will be fully operational by 2023.
The project team is led by The MBS Group, an affiliate of Hackman Capital Partners and the world’s largest studio consulting and production services company, as well as master planning architect PRP.
