DETROIT—Post-production firm Hudson Editorial has agreed to lease a 6,400-sq.-ft. office at the Wright Kay Building in the downtown, at 1500 Woodward Ave.
The company is affiliated with Avalon Films, has worked with advertising agencies Campbell-Ewald, Team Detroit, Leo Burnett and others. The company is scheduled to open their Detroit office in early June, with room for a new Detroit office of Avalon as well.
"We couldn't be more excited to be bringing a new creative resource to the thriving brain-economy and entrepreneurial businesses that are opening up shop and growing quickly in downtown Detroit," said Hudson Executive Producer Kristin Redman in a statement. "As one of the first full-service post-production companies located in Detroit, we look forward to working with advertising agencies and corporate clients, while playing a role in the rejuvenation of the city."
Rock Ventures, an umbrella entity managing a diverse portfolio of companies, investments and real estate, purchased the Wright Kay Building in December 2011. The lease was brokered by Bedrock Real Estate Services, Rock Ventures' full service real estate firm, after major renovations to the 24,000 square foot structure.
"Hudson Editorial is the latest new economy, creative business to join the action along the high-tech Woodward corridor in downtown Detroit. Each day seems to attract a great business to the opportunity that is Detroit," said Jim Ketai, managing partner of Bedrock Real Estate Services, in the statement. In April, Neumann/Smith Architecture announced its new Detroit design studio will occupy the entire third floor of the Wright Kay.
