Channel 35

Los Angeles, CA

The Channel 35 Television Studio project is located in the historic El Pueblo district in downtown Los Angeles; the historic center of the city.


This unique project inserts a 21st century digital media program into a series of 19th century buildings. Channel 35 will re-inhabit the City of Los Angeless first theater (Merced Theater, a 1870 National Historic Registered building) with executive offices and facilities for live TV recording, production, and broadcast distribution. Also, on the ground floor there is a public live audience studio/theater for the use of the surrounding El Pueblo community.


The challenges of placing a state of the art digital facility TV Station in buildings constructed in the late 19th C., were many. The new facility will have a new public entry and plaza, a small Zocalo for communal public events, marked with landmark elevator tower.
