Film production[edit]

In recent years, the Park West neighborhood has become a popular film production center, with the filming of the 2012 Rock of Ages film that reconverted much of NE 14th Street into Los Angeles' Sunset Strip.[4] Television show Burn Notice, filmed almost primarily in Miami's Coconut Grove neighborhood, also often films in Park West studios. In 2010, plans to build a production studio at 29 NW 13th Street were announced. The studios are expected to add a series of sound stages to Park West, and help expand the growing film production industry in the Park West area.[5][6] In July 2011, production plans were announced for the Charlie's Angels 2011 TV show remake to be filmed in production studios in nearby Wynwood.[7][8]
