North Shore Studios - History
Ground-breaking took place.
Production on the site began with '21 Jump Street', 'Wiseguy' and 'Stingray', four months before the construction work was completed.
The facility opened officially, with three grand opening parties.
The total square footage was 225,000 sq.ft.
Originally built by author and producer Stephen J. Cannell for his TV series 21 Jump Street (1987-1991), North Shore Studios was majority owned by Cannell Films of Canada, Ltd, with a minority partner being a company owned by Paul Bronfman. Cannell Films of Canada, Ltd, (a Canadian company) was a wholly owned subsidiary of US based Stephen J. Cannell Productions.
After being bought by Lionsgate it changed name to Lionsgate Studios.
The whole complex was sold to Bosa Development Corp and is now called North Shore Studios again.
