The LA Conservancy posted the following on its Instagram account:
“As currently envisioned, a new multi-story building is to be built directly on top of the Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM)-designated historic studio building. Looming large over CBS Television City, we believe this potentially jeopardizes its historic status. Given it is a large site and future development was always anticipated, a win-win outcome is possible through creative design proposals. We are currently talking with the owners, Hackman Capital, and are hopeful we can work toward a solution that will allow for expansion while still maintaining the look and feel of the iconic CBS Television City studio.”
