It would make an excellent residential building without any need to demolish it, and the studios section (low-rise, on the western side) is huge: Studio One could easily hold an Olympic swimming pool and an Olympic sized audience, and the other studios are pretty big too.

It seems such a shame that this iconic building may come down after almost 50 years as a London landmark.
