Plymouth, MA -- Plymouth Town Meeting members on Saturday, April 4th, overwhelmingly approved three warrant articles that will allow Plymouth Rock Studios to move forward on their access road, known as Rock Studios Drive. The mile-long access road will keep traffic off local roads by providing direct access from Exit 3 on Route 3 to the studio property and also create a new entrance for the Plymouth South High School/Middle School complex adjacent to the property.
An earlier agreement with the Town requires PRS to build the access road before construction of the sound stages can begin. Construction on Rock Studios Drive is tentatively scheduled to being in early summer. "With the approval of Rock Studios Drive, we can now prepare for construction of the road, which brings us closer to the construction of the actual studio complex," CEO of Plymouth Rock Real Estates and Investments Bill Wynne. "I would like to thank the town meeting members, elected officials and town staff for all of their efforts leading up to this successful vote."
It is anticipated that the project will employ up to 1,500 construction workers at its peak and up to 2,000 employees during full operation. Plymouth Rock Studios is a $500-million film and television studio complex in Plymouth, Massachusetts, slated to open in 2010 as the world's first LEED(R)-certified, environmentally friendly studio complex. The studio will have 14 soundstages and a 10-acre back lot, plus production offices, post-production facilities, a theater, hotel, and an amenity village.
