Los Angeles, CA (April 24, 2006)–Cherokee Studios is developing a new “green” environmentally-friendly development that will replace their existing studios at their present address, 751 N. Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles. The project will be led by RE-Think Development, a real estate development company focused on leveraging high performance building technologies and green building practices to build higher value, healthier and more environmentally sound communities for the future.
Not to be confused as another studio shutting down, Cherokee Studios’ owners/operators, the Robb brothers, are adamant that they do intend to re-occupy the new development once completed and introduce the first-of-its-kind “green” professional recording studio.
“We are definitely sentimental about the eventual demolition of the building that has contributed in the making of so many famous albums. If only these walls could talk! But, we also know that we are making history by being the first “green” music recording studio and its good for the planet. That takes the sting off a little,” said co-owner Bruce
Developing the environmentally-friendly studio is The Robbs’ initiative to further the “green” movement. One might even consider that the former Wisconsin residents are acting under the influence of their former Governor and Senator, Gaylord Nelson, the “Grandfather” of Earth Day and initiator of some of the most important environmental legislation including the Environmental Policy Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the fuel efficiency standards for automobiles. Earth Day celebrates its 26 years of raising environmental consciousness this year.
