Cartoon studio Titmouse has leased space at Media Center North, an office building located at 2835 N. Naomi St. in Burbank.
According to CoStar data, Titmouse will become the sole tenant at the 101,907-square-foot structure, which previously housed Psi, a career excellence center.
The move represents Titmouse’s fourth location and will provide space for a 35 percent increase in workforce, according to media reports, which claim that some 250 people will be added to the company’s current 700-person staff.
Titmouse, which has executed work for other companies and developed its own content in-house, is based in Hollywood, where it opened in 2000. Since then, the animation house has opened studios in New York and Vancouver.
Last month the company signed a major production deal with Netflix for original adult animated content. It has already delivered the streamer hit “Big Mouth” and has the upcoming “The Midnight Gospel” in the works at Netflix as well.
Titmouse’s lease commitment is the latest in a long list of Valley moves for animation houses. Last year, Bento Box, the studio behind “Bob’s Burgers,” signed up for more square footage around its North Hollywood hub. In conjunction with the so-called “streaming wars” heating up between Netflix and studio-backed rivals such as Disney Plus and the upcoming HBO Max, production companies of all stripes have been seizing available office space throughout the San Fernando Valley but especially in Burbank, North Hollywood and adjacent areas.
