Yesterday marked the first day at the official offices for DC Entertainment West, in Burbank, at a swanky new building called The Pointe. How swanky? It’s got an extra “e”on the end for super-swank. DC’s SVP Hank Kanalz was very excited about the day:
I cannot describe the excitement we all have on day one. Positively electric!
And well he should be. After looking at a series of pictures he tweeted, you can see that the DC West Coast office, complete with archives and bullpen, is now the new and shiny HQ for all things DC. Let’s take a tour, shall we?
The shiny outside.
Lobby and hallway. Holy crud, is this an office building or an enclave of Trappist monks?
Kanalz’s office door.
Get used to this view: this is where freelancers will go to say “I’m here to see so-and-so.”
The men’s room.
Still empty production offices, aka “bullpen.” Just what will they be producing here? Hm…
The opening day lineup.
Just as the New York offices once held a statue of Clark Kent, the new offices include movie costumes.
The epochal day was celebrated with a hearty lunch!
We’re impressed with Kanalz’s photo skills and enthusiasm. And impressed at these amazing offices. But sad that he missed the other neighborhood landmark — the abandoned Chadney’s across the street. At least Dimples is still open.
