ALLEN PARK (WXYZ) - Action News investigators learned that Lifton Institute for Media Skills and Unity Studios has moved out of Allen Park. Their spokesperson says they will announce a new location in Detroit in the weeks to come.
City of Detroit spokesperson Karen Dumas tells Action News in email: "My understanding is that they will move their executive offices to Tech Town for the near term while building out the site at Focus HOPE."
Action News peeked into the Allen Park Studio Center once occupied by Unity Studios.The windows show empty desks and cleared out out filing cabinets.
City of Allen Park Mayor Gary Burtka issued a press release stating that, "It is fair and obvious to say Unity Studios has not developed into the project its owners represented some months ago, and that we and Allen Park residents have all been waiting for."
The press release also says that, "Under their lease options with development, Unity Studios and Lifton Institute for Media Skills has the right to end the lease if another tenant occupied space on the property which offered competitive services. We have two significant and growing tenants at the Allen Park Studio Center in Stautzenberger Institute and Roush."
Unity Studios spokesperson told Action News they gave notice of their move yesterday.
