The 2.1-acre site may have "developable ..., 26 May 2015 [cached]
The 2.1-acre site may have "developable density" that could make it attractive as more than just another office building for sale, said Fred Mattocks, the CBC's manager of media operations and technology for CBC English services.
The building, which underwent a $65-million renovation in 2009 after the CBC sold off part of the site for two Concord Pacific condo towers, is in an increasingly lively part of the city's eastern downtown. The former main Canada Post office on the next block is about to redeveloped, the refurbished Queen Elizabeth Theatre is across the street and a potential new art gallery is being talked about on another neighbouring block.
Mr. Mattocks said no firm decision has been made about whether to sell the building, which is the second-largest CBC English-language production centre in the country.
The CBC has recently asked local brokers to investigate possibilities, just as it did with its headquarters in downtown Toronto earlier this year.
"The building is not on the market yet because we're exploring," Mr. Mattocks said.
Mr. Mattocks said the analysis will look at whether it makes sense to sell and lease back, stay in the building as is, or consolidate CBC operations into less space to lease out more of the existing building.
"I'm sure brokers are preparing presentations about the potential of the site. Hopefully, there will be a clear enough proposition that we'll have a marketplace offer."
Mr. Mattocks said this is part of a national effort to reduce infrastructure so the public broadcaster's money can be put into programs instead.
The CBC has seen reductions in the amount of staff and space it needs in recent years partly because of technology, but also partly because of successive rounds of job cuts. It has lost both direct funding from the federal government over the years and money from advertising when it lost the national broadcast rights to Hockey Night in Canada last year.
Mr. Mattocks said he didn't have exact numbers on how much of the Vancouver building is unused, but said "it's a significant amount - a mixture of unused and badly used space.
