The Pointe has been a Burbank landmark for all the wrong reasons — a gleaming 14-story blue glass structure finished in 2009 that has been nearly empty since it opened.
But that’s about to change, with comic book superhero factory D.C. Entertainment and public broadcasting station KCET set to move in to occupy a significant portion of the Alameda Avenue building.
They represent the sort of large, long-term media tenants Jeff Worthe, a principal for the firm in charge of the building, held out for when leasing began in terrible market conditions two years ago.
“When the market is bad like it was, it is tempting to consider other options, but we have to stay true to our program,” Worthe said.
KCET announced last week that it is leaving its 105,000-square-foot Los Feliz building, which it sold to the Church of Scientology in April, to occupy 55,000 square feet on 1 1/2 floors at The Pointe.
