The Wilshire Country Club’s truly amazing fireworks are scheduled for Monday evening July 4th at 9pm. One of the real treats in Hancock Park on The 4th of July are these spectacular fireworks offered every year by The Wilshire Country Club.

Last year, Netflix leased 200,000 square feet of the building at 5800 West Sunset Boulevard (Sunset & Bronson) in a deal that many in the industry touted as evidence of Hollywood’s rise. Earlier last month, Netflix executed an additional 10-year lease for the remaining five floors of Icon, or another 123,000 square feet.
The Netflix deal remains the largest lease ever signed in Hollywood in terms of square feet. “This is a landmark deal for Hollywood, for our company, for the project and Sunset Bronson Studios. This lease exemplifies the convergence of tech and media in L.A.” said Hudson Pacific Properties CEO Victor Coleman.
