Nickelodeon held a ribbon-cutting ceremony this afternoon to open their new studio building in Burbank, California, right next door to their current studio.
The new building includes a 400-pound statue of Stimpy in a Zen garden. The sustainable building, which will attempt to get LEED Gold Certification, expands the overall Burbank complex to over 200,000 square-feet, and will be able to accommodate more than 700 employees working on over 20 show productions. Nick quickly outgrew its original Burbank building, which opened in 1998, and until now, had been renting various office buildings in the area for more than a decade.
Shows that are currently being made there include The Loud House, SpongeBob SquarePants, Shimmer and Shine, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
