“`Los Angeles Conservancy has submitted an application on Monday for historic-cultural monument status for CBS’s Television City, which is being shopped around the real estate market. At least several developers are reportedly interested in the property. It sits across from The Grove and original Farmers Market. Experts believe that it could fetch from $500 million to $900 million.

“`Television City played a major role in media history as the initial large-scale location in the country designed to provide mass-production of television programs.  One studio was where Elvis Presley first appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show; and was prominent in the careers of comedians Jack Benny and Carol Burnett, according to the Conservancy. The studio complex remains the home to shows like The Price Is Right and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

“`Television City wouldn’t be the first former CBS facility that has been transformed for new use. CBS’s old headquarters in Hollywood were reborn last year as Kilroy Realty’s Columbia Square. If Television City were awarded landmark designation, any potential redevelopment would have to be vetted by the city’s historic resources office.
