1331 Yonge Street

1331 Yonge Street is the civic address of an office and studio complex in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, It is located on Yonge Street, three blocks south of St. Clair Avenue. It is currently home to the headquarters of CHUM Radio, a division of CTVglobemedia, and to the studios of the company's Toronto radio stations, 1050 CHUM and 104.5 CHUM-FM.

Originally a book bindary and showroom, the building was renovated in 1959 for CHUM's operations, and also eventually housed CHUM-FM, 1050 CHUM and CHUM Radio's national operations. The most prominent feature of the building's exterior is the famous "CHUM Dial 1050" neon sign over the front entrance.

In July 2008, CTVglobemedia sold the building to developer Aspen Ridge Homes for $21.5 million.
