Hudson Pacific Properties Inc. announces the launch of United Recording at 6050 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. United Recording, located at Sunset Gower Studios, was formerly known as Ocean Way Recording.
Hudson Pacific Properties Inc. is a full-service, vertically integrated real estate company focused on owning, operating and acquiring high-quality office properties and state-of-the-art media and entertainment properties in select growth markets primarily in the Pacific Northwest, and Northern and Southern California.
United Recording, one of the world’s most recognized music recording studios, is responsible for record sales of more than 1 billion units. United Recording was founded in 1957 by the legendary recording engineer and electronics inventor Bill Putnam with the backing of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.
The famed recording studios have remained untouched, with the original equipment in place run by industry-leading technical staff, while the lounges and common spaces have undergone significant upgrades. The original control rooms and recording spaces have remained virtually the same, retaining the classic acoustic design favored by artists ranging from Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Ray Charles, to modern hit makers such as Radiohead, Green Day and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
“This is a pivotal time in the studio’s history,” says Rob Goodchild, United Recording manager. “We look to the future while holding ourselves to the standards of our past.”
“United Recording is a legendary studio in the heart of Hollywood,” says Bill Humphrey, General Manager, Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios. “It is not only a piece of entertainment industry history but remains a highly sought-after production space for top artists.”
Hudson Pacific Properties acquired the studio in 2013 and states it is striving to continue the legacy of this historic recording studio. “The rebranding back to the original name, United Recording, is one component of a continued investment in strategic media and entertainment properties and reinforces our goal of providing exceptional multimedia production facilities and services to global media and entertainment clients,” says Victor Coleman, CEO of Hudson Pacific Properties.
