Filming Locations for
The actual Southern California locations where Amazon's 2018
suspense / sci-fi series, "Homecoming" (with Julia Roberts) was filmed.
civilian society – a sort of halfway house for war veterans, apparently designed to help them deal with traumatic experiences and learn to adjust to everyday life.
However, this facility is hiding a very big secret about the program's actual objectives and methods.
To be more exact, the fictional address of the Homecoming facility is "1 Mirror Pond Road., Tampa, FL 33615".
For what it's worth, there is no Mirror Pond Road in Florida. There is a Mud Pond Road in Thonotosassa, Florida. And there is an actual Mirror Pond in the state of Oregon. But no Mirror Pond Road In Tampa.
It is where Heidi ( Julia Roberts ) works as a counselor of sorts, and where she interacts with a group of returning soldiers, becoming especially friendly with a young veteran named Walter Cruz ( Stephan James ).
In Episode 8 ("Protocol"), as the show flashes forward to 2022, we see the same building four years later, when a semi-amnesiac Heidi returns to the facility (with Colin in tow), looking for answers, only to find that Homecoming has apparently been replaced by another business. (A new sign outside reads "Mirror Pond Wellness Center"), and that little remains of the facility's previous interior.
And there is a lengthy scene at 22:06, when Colin confronts the investigator (Thomas Carrasco) outside, and an angry Heidi pushes him into a fountain.
Toyota opened its headquarters here in Torrance in 1967, and stayed here 50 years before ultimately selling the corporate campus (to an Irvine real estate developer, for $270 million) in late 2017 and moving its headquarters to Texas.
This series was filmed in the spring and summer of 2017, when Toyota was possibly already transitioning to their new Texas location, a situation which might have made this building available for filming.
Torrance is an independent city in the South Bay section of Greater Los Angeles, about 15 miles south/southwest of downtown Los Angeles, near Redondo Beach, Gardena, and Carson.
The Toyota campus is just a half mile south of the San Diego (405) freeway, on the west side of Western Avenue, between 190th Street (to the north) and Del Amo Boulevard (to the south)
Here is a map pinpointing the building's exact location.
To make sure, I then compared online images of the Toyota headquarters to the shots of the Homecoming facility – and naturally they matched.
