I worked for years at the London Television Centre
and know it well.
It was designed so that it could easily be turned into a hotel if LWT didn't work out.
It would make an excellent residential building without any need to demolish it, and the studios section (low-rise, on the western side) is huge: Studio One could easily hold an Olympic swimming pool and an Olympic sized audience, and the other studios are pretty big too.
The backstage area, where all the sets, lights, etc are held is also massive, and there is a large underground car park.
It seems such a shame that this iconic building may come down after almost 50 years as a London landmark.
