Florida Governor Rick Scott joined executives from Comcast, NBC Universal and Telemundo Enterprises to break ground and officially announced the building plans for Telemundo’s new global headquarters in northwest Miami-Dade.
“I am excited to announce that NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises has chosen Miami as the best location to build their new global headquarters,” Scott said.
The new state-of-the-art broadcast center located at the Beacon Lakes Industrial park on 25th Street and the Turnpike will house all of the properties owned by NBCUniversal‘s Hispanic franchises including Telemundo Network, Telemundo Studios, NBC Universo (formerly Mun2), Telemundo Digital, NBCU International and Telemundo Internacional.
Cesar Conde, chairman of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises and NBCUniversal International Group said this investment highlights the company’s commitment to the Hispanic market in the United States.
“Our new global headquarters will fold all of our division offices and production studio spaces into one state-of-the-art facility that will help us do business in a more collaborative way,” Conde said.
The new broadcast campus a first of its kind in South Florida is expected to create approximately 3,000 construction-related jobs and generate an estimated $400 million in sales for Florida businesses.
Telemundo Enterprises hopes to have the 450,000 sq-ft facility up and running by the start of the 2018 World Cup.
