Hines is excit­ed to acquire Bur­bank Media Stu­dios Phase VII and VIII, because stu­dios are an attrac­tive asset to com­ple­ment our already strong pres­ence in the region,” said Varun Aku­la, man­ag­ing direc­tor, U.S. West Region at Hines. Stu­dios are expe­ri­enc­ing a peri­od of rapid growth in demand, due to expand­ing enter­tain­ment invest­ment and, this acqui­si­tion is a sig­nif­i­cant cat­a­lyst for our con­tin­ued growth across the west­ern U.S.”

Omar Thowfeek, Hines Glob­al man­ag­ing direc­tor of invest­ments, added, Bur­bank is one of the strongest stu­dio mar­kets in the coun­try and Bur­bank Media Stu­dios Phase VII and VIII is an excel­lent long-term invest­ment and sol­id addi­tion to the Hines Glob­al Income Trust port­fo­lio. Con­tent cre­ation led assets are an impor­tant real estate type that we will con­tin­ue to explore for future growth oppor­tu­ni­ties.”

The acqui­si­tion joins a $2.9 bil­lion port­fo­lio that is rough­ly two-thirds weight­ed toward the indus­tri­al and liv­ing sec­tors. Hines Glob­al is diver­si­fied by geog­ra­phy and real estate asset class with a focus on dynam­ic sec­tors and markets.
