It is the second largest CBC production facility in English Canada, and the third-largest overall, after Toronto's Canadian Broadcasting Centre and Montreal's Maison Radio-Canada. The building was designed by Paul Merrick Architect and built in 1975.[1]

The building underwent significant renovations, completed in 2009.[1] The expanded facility included community space to house the offices of the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Vancouver International Children's Festival and the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, as well as a 4,000-square-foot (370 m2) performance studio similar to Toronto's Glenn Gould Studio.

The building's address is 700 Hamilton Street in Downtown Vancouver.

In addition to Vancouver's local CBC broadcast stations (CBU, CBU-FM, CBUF, CBUX, CBUT, CBUFT), and the national satellite radio network CBC Radio 3 operates from the Vancouver building.
