250 Richmond Street WestEdit profile
250 Richmond Street West is a studio complex in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The building now serves as the new headquarters of Bell Media Radio's national operations, a division of Bell Media and to the studios of the company's Toronto radio stations, CHUM (TSN Radio 1050), CHUM-FM (104.5 CHUM FM) as well as CTV's newly-acquired CFXJ-FM (Flow 93.5). The building previously served as the home of the Whiskey Saigon and Joe nightclubs. This building will likely be the home of the new national TSN Radio network when it launches in mid-2011. The building is located at the corner of Richmond and Duncan Streets, and is connected with 299 Queen Street West via former CHUM offices at 260 Richmond Street West (former Tip Top Tailor warehouse, c 1914). The buildings is likely part of the 1924 addition to 260 Richmond. This complex is where Bell Media's specialty television channels such as the television operations of CP24, as well as MuchMusic, BNN, MuchMore, Bravo!, E! and Space are based. CHUM and CHUM-FM's previous headquarters were located at 1331 Yonge Street until CTV announced it would sell the building to developer Aspen Ridge Homes for $21.5 million in July 2008. CTV also announced it would move the CHUM neon sign to the new complex, the sign was unveiled at its new location on June 15, 2009, and the company's Toronto radio stations officially moved into the new complex on August 19, 2009.
