Music streaming giant Spotify has recently announced that they will be opening a small satellite office in Detroit. The New York-based business is scheduled to rent an office space at 132 N. Old Woodward Ave., which intersects with Maple Road in the Detroit suburb of Birmingham. Talk about plain and simple!
It has been speculated that a mere five to seven employees will work within the office inside a nondescript two-story building.
As Canadians gear up to celebrate Canada Day, July 1st will also now be pegged as the opening date for the official launch. Although Canadians will be busy unwrapping fireworks, it can be assumed that Spotify employees will be unpacking boxes at that time.
A representative for the well-known company suggested that they are expecting to grow beyond the Birmingham area. This is in addition to the nearly $3 million a month that the business pays for a dozen floors atop the World Trade Center.
It is still unclear as to why the company has opened the office in the Birmingham area. It has been speculated that it may be a sales office for local advertising.
Following the somewhat shocking news, Jack White has opened several Third Man Record stores in the city. In addition, the musician has recently opened the Third Man Pressing Plant.
Although Spotify focuses on the digital music, the Third Man Facility has helped make modern advancements within the vinyl market. Ultimately, this creates a curious contrast between the two. The classic vinyl format will always seem to be the popular choice. However, one would be surprised to know that the two are often intertwined.
Regardless of the reason behind the decision, we look forward to seeing the overall progressions within the company.
