Despite complaints from recording industry professionals and concerned local citizens, the Los Angeles City Council has approved condo development near the Capitol Records building in Hollywood.
Sound engineers were worried construction would interfere with musicians recording in the nearby studio in the basement of the Capitol Records tower. But according to Billboard, construction will only go ahead under a few conditions. Activities are banned after 10 a.m. within 40 feet of the building, a sound baffle is also being installed, and there will be ongoing noise and vibration monitoring during the project, which also includes an underground parking garage.
EMI released a statement saying the agreement is favorable, adding that it will "protect the acoustic integrity and operations of the Capitol Records Studios and ensure it continues as one of the world's premiere recording facilities, as it has for more than 50 years."
