Instead of writing a new post I’m copying and pasting one I made over at TVNewsTalk
The new Telemundo Headquarters which was announced in February 2016 is now opening its doors to its first employees. If you look on social media, #TelemundoCenter, an open house was held for employees.
The Telemundo Center consists of 475,000 sq ft of main building consisting of offices and studios; 100,000 sq ft of warehouse space; house upwards of 1300 employees; and cost upwards of $250 million.
There are 13 studios ranging from 800-8,000 sq feet which will be connected by an almost pure IP network according to TVNewsCheck.
Naturally being in Florida the building is designed to handle hurricanes has a waterproof shell. I’m not sure if the building is any of the main hurricane evacuation zones - something which they had to do last year with Hurricane Irma.
The facility will be used to house all of Telemundo Enterprises and be used to produce news, sports and telenovelas*. The existing NBC/Telemundo Owned local stations WTVJ/WSCV will remain in their current facilities. I need to look at a map but I believe the local stations offices are better suited for newsgathering and are centrally located. Additionally they are relatively “new” at being under 20 years old.
* Some of the telenovelas that were made at the existing headquarters apparently won’t be making the move and will now be produced internationally for less money. It resulted in about 100 layoffs of mainly senior technical staff. I believe the ones making the moves internationally are Telemundo coproductions.
: Might as well add Telemundo to the title as well.

Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
