Grand Victor Sound studio

Tenants of the building at 30 Music Sq. W. have been instructed to move out before Dec. 1, following the controversial sale of the property to Bravo Development.

The property is home to historic RCA Studio A, which is today know as Ben Folds’ Grand Victor Sound studio. Citing the legendary artists who recorded there, Folds rallied support to save the property from being sold and likely demolished. The sale to the developer went through anyway, and the building inspections that followed deemed it “no longer economically viable.”

Bravo’s Tim Reynolds released this statement yesterday (Sept. 15): “From the time I purchased this building at 30 Music Sq. W., I have been extremely candid about my intentions to fully assess its condition before making any decisions. I engaged structural, electrical and mechanical engineers to oversee that process and they came back with reports that detailed the extremely poor condition of both the 20,000-square-foot building and the 5,000-square-foot studio. I released those reports to the public several weeks ago so they could understand the situation better. It is based on these reports that I must make my decisions about this building moving forward. I have kept my tenants informed of the process and have been very open with them about what the future might hold.”
