“Third Rail Studios” will be Georgia’s newest film and television production studio, located less than 15 miles north of Midtown Atlanta in the creative community known as the Yards District of Assembly, the site of the historic former General Motors assembly plant.
The first phase of construction includes an adaptive reuse of an existing 130,000 SF building to accommodate 60,000 SF of sound stages, 27,000 SF of production support plus 38,000 SF of mill space, onsite production vendor spaces and up to 30 acres of paved backlot. Third Rail Studios can provide up to 30 Gigabits of fiber optic bandwidth for high speed data transfer.
The name “Third Rail Studios,” was chosen as a reference to the three rail lines that previously served the General Motors Plant as well as the creative energy the media production community will bring to the development. The now defunct rail lines will be preserved and integrated within the landscape, akin to New York City’s Highline. The studios will anchor the “Yards District,” portion of the ASSEMBLY development, a one of a kind destination for dining, housing, entertainment, parks, art, retail, manufacturing and business. Third Rail Studios has the only purpose built sound stages adjacent to MARTA, making transportation faster and more efficient from Buckhead, Midtown and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
