Facts

  • Built in the place of the very first television studios in Latin America, known as Palácio do Rádio, owned by the former TV Tupi broadcasting station.
  • There is a exclusive restaurant for corporation executives at the top of the concrete base of the tower, which is 90 meters tall.
  • In the late 1970s the original Tupi television studios, that existed since 1950 in that address, were demolished to give place to a more sophisticated broadcasting center which included the TV tower.
  • Nowadays SBT hires the studios out to Abril communication group, which keeps there the headquarters of the paid TV station ESPN Brasil.
  • As the Tupi television network went bankrupt in 1980, only the new studios complex could be inaugurated on time -- the TV tower was completed later by one of its successor broadcasting channels, SBT.
