The future home of Pandora’s creators has been given the green light to move ahead — and by all accounts, it appears that it will be an impressive HQ.

The 92,000 square-foot project is slated for a business park in Agoura Hills, CA — and is being described as the new site for “Avatar” director Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment studio by the developer.

According to sources, a planning commissions signed off on the site of the studio; which will include 40,000 square feet of office space in an existing building, as well as a new 52,000-square foot stat-of-the-art building featuring blue screens, wires and pulleys, and live action sets for actors and filmmakers to capture movement.

Avatar 2 and 3 are going to be happening in this building. This is probably some of the most technologically advanced studio filming that will be done,” architect Brian Poliquin said. “The future studio building along with video game developer THQ, which is already on site, is going to turn the whole area into a digital entertainment campus.”

As the project is currently in early development, it remains to be seen how Cameron will apply his environmental cred to the new studio. The existing building can certainly be retrofitted to be more green — but I would expect nothing but the highest LEED standards for the new one. There exists a real opportunity here for the 56-year-old director to create a model sustainable studio unlike anything else currently out there.

Considering how he continues to raise the bar with his film making, I would expect nothing less.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals
