The CHUM neon sign at 250 Richmond Street West

250 Richmond Street West is a studio complex in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The building now serves as the new headquarters of CHUM Radio Network's national operations, a division of CTVglobemedia and to the studios of the company's Toronto radio stations, CHUM (CP24 Radio 1050) and CHUM-FM (104.5 CHUM FM). The building previously served as the home of the Whiskey Saigon and Joe nightclubs.

The building is located at the corner of Richmond and Duncan Streets, and is connected with 299 Queen Street West where CTVglobemedia's specialty television channels such as CablePulse24, MuchMusic, MuchMore, Bravo!, Star! and Space are based.

CHUM and CHUM-FM's previous headquarters were located at 1331 Yonge Street until CTV announced it would sell the building to developer Aspen Ridge Homes for $21.5 million in July 2008.[1] CTV also announced it would move the CHUM neon sign to the new complex, the sign was unveiled at its new location on June 15, 2009, and the company's Toronto radio stations officially moved into the new complex on August 19, 2009.[2][3][4]
