From October 2012 the studios were demolished to make way for a new shopping complex.
See Curbed LA postings about the development.

An article (http://www.presstelegram.com/news/ci_19802192) from 2012 states that the studios lost $13 million in the last seven years and cannot continue to trade.
A large portion of this must relate to the controversy over health issues at the former NASA plant (see History page).

By April 2013, the site had been completely cleared. The admin buildings remaining from the Vultee days are still there, but in very poor condition.
