Yesterday, I finally met the new owners of the Nishioka building!
I have some very interesting news to share, but I caution you all: it’s VERY preliminary.
The new owners plan to restore the building and convert into a performance space. There may even be a spot for Empire Seven studios, since apparently they are faced with moving out of the space that they currently occupy.
Personally, I want to see more about this before I get too excited about it. But the really good news is that the beautiful old brick building is NOT facing the wrecking ball. Hooray!
