I. CBS interviewed brokers to sell its Television City campus: sources
By Hannah Miet | September 27, 2017 07:00AM

The Real Estate News.

“This building has enough concrete in it to build 28

miles of four-lane highway,” Edward R. Murrow

proclaimed in a 1953 CBS special about “Television

City,” the network’s mammoth complex in Los

Angeles’ Fairfax District.

Over the next six decades, TV City would became

an iconic venue that hosted shows such as

“The Price is Right,” “All in the Family,” and

“Dancing with the Stars.”

But its status as a center of entertainment

and culture may be in flux. CBS Corporation

has been in discussions with brokerages to

shop the complex at 7800 Beverly Boulevard,

The Real Deal has learned.

After interviewing more than five firms for

the roughly 25-acre property on Beverly

Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue — which

has about 1 million square feet of studio

and office space, including eight stages —
CBS recently narrowed the search down

to two, sources said.

The network hasn’t indicated if it intends

to vacate the property entirely, sources

said. The nature of what will be marketed

— a full sale, a sale-leaseback or a ground

lease — remains unclear.

Representatives for CBS did not return

multiple requests for comment.

CBS subleases much of the space at TV

City to other production outfits, sources

said. The network may be looking to

consolidate its own operations at its Studio

City campus at 4024 Radford Avenue,

they said.

Though the discussions are in a preliminary

stage, interested buyers are said to be circling.

At least two major developers looked to talk

with CBS once chatter about the broker

interviews began to spread, sources said.

TV City does not appear to be entitled for

new development.

 

The campus, designed by architect Gin Wong

at Pereira & Luckman, was built in 1952 on

the former site of Gilmore Stadium. CBS acquired

the land from the A.F. Gilmore Company

for $1.2 million in 1949.

III. COMMENTS

Contributing dollars to the RMA/RMALA to
either RMALA membership or RMA night
enables RMA to ingratiate itself by
capitalizing on most professional
recording musicians to use for it’s
exclusive financial benefit at the
expense of most career recording
musicians demise.

================================

I. AFM/LOCAL 802

The AFM is buying a Building in southern Manhattan,  It is reportedly
almost an entire floor, described as a condo. Considering the membership
of the Federation has gone down to 60,000 from 100,000 in the last ten
years, is this a smart investment?

Till recently the AFM has been renting.

——————–

Local 802

A member noticed one contractor for Jewish weddings was doing
a lot of them, and was never billed for them because there was
no billing procedure.

Now they’re telling the members who played those weddings they
owe 5 years or more of fees, after the fact.

nice…

Meanwhile,

AFM raising the dues Locals have to pay to the AFM,  is driving
a lot of smaller locals to close and causing them to be absorbed
by those locals that are left.
