Real World Hollywood house reportedly under construction at old CBS building

The house for the 20th season of The Real World is under construction in Hollywood, according to a report. Curbed LA quotes a source who says “The Real World house is being built and is almost completed on the old CBS building lot in Hollywood on Sunset. They are almost complete with the construction which even includes a pool built into the Parking lot.”

The house will be located at the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Gower, in “the studio that used to house KCBS,” TVtattle says. Thanks to Google Maps’ street view, you can see the building here.

The report doesn’t make it clear if they’re using the existing building, or constructing an entirely new structure; either way, the house will be a “green” house. And many of the recent show houses have largely just been gutted and converted spaces, not actual houses. Still, why not just use the Big Brother house, which will be empty in a month or so, and is located at CBS Studio City just over the hills? We already know that it’s perfectly suited to housing a group of assholes.
