Tennis Channel Opens HQ at Former Santa Monica IMAX Theater

Clune Construction and Gensler Architects have completed the new headquarters of Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Tennis Channel, Bally Sports West and Bally Sports SoCal in Santa Monica, CA. The new state-of-the-art complex is a 63,000-square-foot former Imax Theater at 3003 Exposition Boulevard.

The building features open technical areas and production and edit rooms that are combined with social spaces for impromptu meetings. The café opens onto an external garden, and the paint, skylight and exposed conduit was designed to be aesthetically pleasing. The project also involved the construction of three new broadcast studios and an advanced rack system for the AV equipment.

“It was a privilege to be part of such a huge transformation with this amazing team. We worked together to overcome many permitting challenges while still running an efficient and safe project,” said Clune Project Executive Darrin Craig. “Seeing the final space and how it will function for the Tennis Channel staff was very rewarding.”
