Olympic broadcasting studios

Standing at nine-storeys high, the OBS Tower was an impressive addition to the Stratford Olympic Park and Container City’s™ biggest build to date.

Located on a tree-lined public plaza within the park, the OBS Tower created space for groundfloor food outlets with their own kitchens. Above these sat ten broadcasting studios, each one offering the visiting media studios unobstructed views over the main stadium through the large, glass window panels.
