In May of 2013, owner Steve Fisher bought out his former partner and co-founder Josh Butler, beginning a new chapter for 11th Street Studios. As we part ways, we wish Josh well in his own new beginning. As for 11th Street, we find the change energizing, and with the new consolidated ownership comes a renewed focus on excellence and growth. Our new direction can be seen in the many exciting changes taking place around the building.
One obvious change is our new and improved online prescence. We love our beautiful new website and domain at 11thStreetStudios.com (our old domain of EleventhStreetStudios.com is still functional, and simply forwards to our new simplified one. Thanks to our friend Mathias Sorum over at Sorum.tv for all his help and excellent work with the new website, photos, graphic design, SEO, and marketing efforts.
Another major sign of change has been all of the ongoing renovations taking place since the summer. First was the construction of a 3rd studio, with the newly dubbed Studio B finally opening on September 1st. Our old Studio B was re-dubbed Studio C to simplify things going forward, as this is a more logical arrangement. Next was the creation of our new kitchenette off of the back hallway, built out of an old machine room that was no longer in use. It now houses our new 45 selection Snack machine, our new 45 selection Drink machine, our water machine, coffee machine, blender, and a new kitchen countertop and cabinets complete with a brand new undermount microwave. Construction of Studio B’s lounge began in October and should be completely finished by the New Year. In the process both the C Lounge and the Reception Area are getting a fresh redesign. Everyone has been pleasantly surprised with the new layout, and we are all excited to see the project finished.
We have a number of major upgrades and additions planned for the near future, but we are keeping the details under wraps right now, so stay tuned to hear about them as they happen. Keep an eye on this blog for regular updates on the happenings around the studio, our monthly session notes, press releases, and our clients’ activities. To all current and former clients, feel free to drop us a line to keep us updated about any new releases or other exciting news, we would love to share the info here in our postings.
