The ABC expects between $45 million and $50 million from the sale of its Ripponlea studio, in Melbourne's Elsternwick.

The 8 Gordon Street offering (pictured above) has been anticipated since the ABC moved staff to its revamped Southbank headquarters.

The ABC has already sold its nearby Selwyn Street facility to Woolworths for about $45 million.

Savills expect interest from residential and commercial developers, along with education, aged-care and healthcare operators.

The Gordon Street studios, built between 1956 and 1965, have been home to television shows including Bellbird, Power Without Glory, The Gillies Report, Kath and Kim and more recently, Mad as Hell.

The studios, closed last November, were home to the first purpose-built television studio in Victoria in with a Post-War International style building.
