Land Sale Would Support Proposed South Shore Film Studio

October 14, 2021

The planned Regal Mile Ventures film studio in South Shore would incorporate approximately .5 acres of City-owned property through a land sale agreement proposed to City Council today by Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot.

Consisting of six vacant lots on the southwest corner of 77th Street and Blackstone Avenue, the properties would be sold to Regal Mile Ventures LLC for their appraised value of $31,000.

The lots would eventually be incorporated into the $75 million movie studio complex, which is planned for approximately seven acres of partially improved land on the 7700 block of South Chicago Avenue by ID8 Ventures, which produces “The Chi” television series, and Loop Capital Markets.
