One of Hollywood’s most historic, and crowded, lots is getting a $700-million upgrade.

Paramount Pictures has unveiled plans to modernize and expand its 56-acre Los Angeles lot, which houses executive offices along with soundstages and producers.

‘This is a wonderful way to reinvest in what brought us to the party,’ said Brad Grey, chairman of the studio behind ‘Transformers’ and ‘Paranormal Activity.’
