In 2010, plans to build a production studio at 29 NW 13th Street were announced. The studios are expected to add a series of sound stages to Park West, and help expand the growing film production industry in the Park West area.[5][6] In July 2011, production plans were announced for the Charlie's Angels 2011 TV show remake to be filmed in production studios in nearby Wynwood.[7][8]
