250 Richmond Street West

The CHUM neon sign at 250 Richmond Street West

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 Bell Media's newly acquired CFRB (Newstalk 1010) and CKFM-FM (99.9 Virgin Radio). The building previously served as the home of the Go Gos, Whiskey Saigon and Joe nightclubs.

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 Tailors warehouse, c 1914). The buildings is likely part of the 1924 addition to 260 Richmond.[1] 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.[2] 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. [3][4][5] The studios for CFRB and CKFM were previously located at 2 St. Clair Avenue at Yonge and St. Clair until these stations moved to the complex on May 10, 2014.
