Los Angeles, CA (February 13, 2013)-Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc., owners of the 100-year-old Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood, has announced the acquisition of Ocean Way Recording Hollywood.
The famed recording studios will remain untouched, with staff and equipment in place, as upgrades to the lounges and common spaces undergo "significant upgrades."
Howard S. Stern, president and director of Hudson Pacific Properties, commented, "It's with great pride that we announce this strategic alliance of our legendary film and TV studios and soundstages with arguably the most honored music recording studios in the world. This combination of cutting-edge visual production with the epitome of music recording is a monumental day for Hollywood."
Allen Sides, founder and former president of Ocean Way Recording Hollywood, added, "Our standards of recording have never been matched by our peers and we could not have found a better successor to continue Ocean Way Hollywood's legacy as the premier recording studio in the world."
Sides will continue to provide his technical and sonic knowledge to the ongoing studio operations. The acquisition agreement between Sides and the new owners does not involve his other enterprises, which include Record One Studios, Ocean Way St. Barth's, Ocean Way Nashville, Ocean Way Audio and Ocean Way Drums.
