Detroit newspapers’ building sold

Detroit Free Press

A real estate services company has bought the building that houses the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News, John Gallagher reports in the Free Press.

Bedrock Real Estate Services “is the real estate arm of Quicken Loans founder and Chairman Dan Gilbert’s family of companies,” Gallagher writes.

The building at 615 W. Lafayette Street was designed by Albert Kahn and built in 1917. The papers plan to move to another building owned by Bedrock.
