New location found for Detroit News, Free Press


DETROIT (AP) — The business agency for The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press says it's found a new location for the newspapers' downtown offices.

The Detroit Media Partnership announced that it has agreed to terms for a move to the former Federal Reserve Building. The announcement follows a search that was announced more than a year ago. The aim is to allow for a more digitally focused workplace.

The newspapers report Thursday that Joyce Jenereaux, president of the partnership, said the move could take place by the end of September.

The new location is owned by Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert and his Bedrock Real Estate Services.

The Detroit News has been in the papers' current building since 1917, and the Free Press left its previous historic home and arrived in 1998.
