Many people continue to search for the location of the “Arrested Development” Banana Stand, but the truth is that it was merely a prop. It was actually set up in Marina Del Rey, which is approximately 50 miles away from Balboa Island. The building that housed the Bluth’s Original Frozen Banana Stand prop was situated next to the Lighthouse Fountain & Grill, across from the Sapori Italian Restaurant in Marina Del Rey during the early 2000s.
