Howard Hughes complex getting $50 million makeover

October 26, 2010 |

The decaying former headquarters of aviation giant Howard Hughes—including the enormous hangar where the reclusive billionaire built his famous Spruce Goose airplane—will be turned into a creative office campus. The hangar is currently used as a sound stage for movie and television production—much of “Avatar” was filmed there—and will be upgraded to contain five sound stages that can be used simultaneously.
