The Columbia Broadcasting System building opened on April 30, 1938, but it had previously been the old Nestor Studios location, which housed early radio stations. The company's sprawling production facilities are at another location--at Beverly and Fairfax in West Hollywood. The architect for this building was William Lescaze.
