Eastwest moves to famous location
|In January 2006 Eastwest founder Doug Rogers purchased the famous Cello Studios in Hollywood, and saved the historic location from certain demolition, as the studios are located on prime Sunset Boulevard real estate in a development area. The studios were auctioned January 19, 2006 and Doug Rogers was the successful bidder, outbidding a real estate investment trust. In May 2006 Eastwest headquarters moved to the historic studio.
"This is an accomplishment I am very proud of " says Rogers. "We had an opportunity to save the famous studios, built 40 years ago by Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Bill Putnam, from the wrecking ball, plus it will make a great world headquarters for Eastwest and provide us with some of the most incredible recording rooms in the world to create even better software products." The 21,000 sq recording complex, now renamed Eastwest Studios, has earned more RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) gold and platinum records, and more engineering awards over it's 40 year history than any other studios in the world. Eastwest Studios is one of only fifteen recording studios featured in the book Temples Of Sound.
Both Hollywood Heritage, an organization dedicated to the preservation of Hollywood landmarks, and the Los Angeles CRA (Community Redevelopment Agency) have thanked Doug Rogers for saving an important part of America's music culture.
