According to a new report, the home that was featured in the first Star Wars film has been in the works for years, and was originally designed by architect Albert Hall, but the real estate mogul passed away in the film’s final days.
The Star Wars Trilogy, which is now in its 40th anniversary, began filming in 1977 and ended in 1986, according to the film industry website.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the iconic Star Wars apartment complex is being constructed on the site of the former Paramount Theater on Wilshire Boulevard in Irvine, CA.
Construction is slated to start in the spring of 2020.
The building has been a favorite of celebrities and other members of the film community, including Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, who live there.
It has also been the subject of numerous lawsuits from the building’s owners, and the owners have fought back, filing lawsuits against both the developer and the city of Irvine.
The developer has also filed for bankruptcy in the past, and in December, it agreed to sell the property to a group of investors who hope to redevelop it into a mixed-use development.
The property is listed for $6.9 million.
