Company will Invest Over $250 Million in New 450,000 sq. ft. Facility
Miami, FL – NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises unveiled plans for the building of its new global headquarters in Miami-Dade County. The company is set to break ground on a 450,000 sq. ft. “built to suit” facility on approximately 21 acres at NW 25th Street and the Florida Turnpike. NBCUniversal and parent company Comcast will invest more than $250 million in the construction of the division’s new global headquarters which will initially house 1,100 employees, with the capacity to expand to approximately 1,300. The headquarters will bring all of the division’s offices, broadcast and production operations under one roof including the Telemundo Network, Telemundo Studios and Telemundo International, as well as its cable network NBC Universo and its digital media operations.
“This is a very important step in the evolution of our company at a time when we’re enjoying tremendous momentum and have just wrapped a record-breaking year,” said Cesar Conde, Chairman of NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises and NBCUniversal International Group.
Governor Rick Scott said, “I am excited to announce that NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises has chosen Miami as the best location to build their new global headquarters and create 150 new Florida jobs. By cutting $1 billion in taxes and creating the new $250 million Florida Enterprise Fund this year, we will make Florida more competitive so companies like Telemundo will continue to grow and create jobs for our families.”
“Our investment in this technologically advanced building is the latest example of our enthusiasm for NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises, its bright future, and our strong commitment to Florida,” said David L. Cohen, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, Comcast Corporation.
From its new global headquarters, NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises will be poised to provide even more compelling Spanish-language programming and multiplatform connections to the growing US Hispanic market and audiences around the world. With the support of Governor Rick Scott, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and the Beacon Council, the new building will mark the largest investment ever in a state-of-the-art multimedia production and broadcast facility in South Florida.
