DETROIT (WXYZ) - In stories posted on their websites, the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press have announced that they will be moving out of the historic building they now share and into a new home in the city.
The newspapers say the move will come in the next 12 to 18 months.
Both the News and Free Press - as well as the Detroit Media Partnership, which oversees their business operations - are currently housed in an Albert Kahn designed building on W. Layafette in Detroit.
Reports from each paper say the building and the property surrounding it will be put up for sale in conjunction with the move.
They say they are looking to sign a long term lease for more modern facilities. They say they prefer to remain in the Downtown area, but are not ruling out other sections of the city.
