The Juneau Empire is on the move

Advertising and editorial staff are moving to Jordan Creek Center.

After over 30 years in the same location, the Juneau Empire offices will have a new home as of May 1.

The paper’s editorial and advertising staff will move to the Jordan Creek Center. The printing press will remain at the current Channel Drive location.

The staff does not anticipate service disruptions as a result of the move.

“We feel that the location of our new office will make us more accessible for our readers and advertisers and reflects our commitment to continuing as the voice of Alaska’s capital city,” said Stephanie Spiess, advertising director at the Empire. “We’re really excited about this move to the valley.”

According to Spiess, the new location offers a more flexible layout.

“Our new space is modern and well-suited to our evolving needs as a 21st-century media organization,” she said.

Editor Ben Hohenstatt agreed.

“The move makes a lot of sense, and I’m excited about the paper’s new home,” Hohenstatt said. “We’ll continue to report the local, state and national stories that impact readers’ lives.”

Additionally, the move frees up office space for SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium, which owns the building where the Empire’s offices are now located.

A rich history continues

The Empire has been publishing news from Alaska’s capital since 1912 under four different nameplates, including The Alaska Daily Empire and the Southeast Alaska Empire.

Over the years, the paper’s office has been located in various downtown locations, including the Alaska Light and Power Company Building at 325 Second Street between 1977 and 1987. The printing press moved to the current Channel Drive location in 1986, with office and editorial departments following in early 1987.
