Reputably NZ's Best Recording Acoustics

Auction 09 Oct 2019 Unless Sold Prior

Listing Number: HHC4122
About this listing
Calling all musicians, film companies, gaming firms and digital production houses ... here is an opportunity not to be missed! Purchased post-earthquakes, the current owner has poured his heart, soul, savings and energy into re-designing and re-building the space that was on offer, to create not only one of New Zealand's leading, most respected and sought after recording studios, but also a premium commercial site with multiple offices, a kitchen/boardroom area and extensive storage options.

Set over two levels, with two separate entrances, the upstairs office space and downstairs recording facilities can be utilized independently, or incorporated to form one large operation.

Of particular interest to the recording industry, the current fit-out has been meticulously designed to ensure exceptional acoustics in the various recording zones, with extreme care taken with soundproofing (to include extreme weather events like hail). It can honestly be said that nothing has been left to chance when redesigning this space. The layout of the audio booths and mixing rooms allows for seamless connection between performers and engineers. The list of composers, musicians, singers and performers who have utilized the world-class facilities on offer here is a virtual 'who's who' of the NZ music industry.

Flexibility of use is a key element to the layout as it is on offer here, with two control rooms, three audio booths and a separate, large (70sqm) room. This expansive space with a 5 metre ceiling height, can seat up to 50 people for in-house concerts and performances and can also house a green screen and has been utilised by the film industry for shooting and audio overdubbing. The business's current liquor license and thoughtfully set up bar in the foyer area (complete with bar leaners) perfectly facilitates the regularly held performances and many social gatherings that have been hosted here.

If the current configuration doesn't suit your purpose, you could see this space as an empty canvas. With superb road frontage and 6 car parking spaces, the options are there for many uses, including Warehouse, Retail, Offices and specialised rooms.

The current owner/operator has his exciting new business already pulling him overseas, so he is resolutely committed to selling. You can secure the building on its own, or perhaps you would like the option of acquiring just the wonderful Orange Recording Studio business, with some 400 clients on the database and with a multitude of state-of-the-art gear available. You can also secure the studio's highly respected head sound engineer if required. Orange is not only the new black, with so much on offer here, it's every colour of a vibrant and exciting spectrum. Viewing is easy, so please contact the Listing Agents to arrange a viewing time.
