A block from the Huntington Place convention center, the Detroit Media Partnership Building was designed by architecture firm Albert Kahn Associates and constructed in 1916 as the Detroit News Building. Several additions were made within the next five years, and radio station WWJ began broadcasting from the building. In 1988, the newspaper entered into a joint-operating agreement with the Detroit Free Press; 10 years after, the latter moved in. Both moved out in 2014, when the property was purchased by Bedrock. The six-story structure features a facade of limestone accented with statues of printing-industry innovators. The space includes offices and a restaurant, while the restored lobby serves as an event venue adorned with stone walls, an arched plaster ceiling and a centrally hanging metal globe lamp.
