Jan. 28. 2021 By Michael Dorgan

The historic Kaufman Astoria Studios has landed a big-name tenant, according to a report.

Apple has closed on a deal to take up a large space at the studio in order to produce original content, according to the real estate publication The Real Deal.

The tech giant’s streaming service provider, called Apple TV+, is set to take around 90,000 square feet inside the studio’s new “ONstage” production facility located at 34-11 36th St.

The company plans to produce original TV shows and movies for its subscription-based service.

Apple will occupy around 75,000 square feet of production space on the ground floor and fourth floor as well as 15,000 square feet of office space on the fifth floor. The space comes with editing facilities, dressing rooms, costume areas, pantries and lounges, according to the publication.

It is unclear as to when Apple will take up the space and the terms of the lease.

Apple has been filming the dark comedy series “Dickinson,” at another studio space within the Kaufman campus. The series is based on the life of the 19th Century poet Emily Dickinson.

Kaufman Astoria Studio first opened its doors in 1920 and helped establish the neighborhood’s art district.

Many prominent movies and television shows, including “Sesame Street” and “Orange is the New Black,” have been shot at Kaufman Astoria Studios.
