MIAMI — Telemundo has opened its $250 million global headquarters in Miami’s Beacon Lakes Industrial Park. The Spanish-language media company is a subsidiary of NBCUniversal and Comcast Corp. Telemundo Center is situated on 21 acres and spans nearly 500,00 square feet, with the capacity to house 1,500 employees. The new facility brings all of the division’s offices, broadcast and production operations under one roof, including Telemundo Network, Telemundo Global Studios, Universo channel, Telemundo’s digital media operations and NBCUniversal International Group’s Latin American offices. The building features 15 studios, including two digital studios, virtual and augmented reality sets and a news operation. In addition, the facility houses the recently launched Telemundo Academy, a multimedia educational institution that partners with high schools and universities to train future media leaders. The LEED-certified building is constructed to sustain a Category 5 hurricane and remain in operation during weather and other environmental emergencies. Telemundo Center is estimated to contribute approximately $360 million in state taxes over the next 20 years.
