Herald to move to Frontier building on 41st Street

EVERETT — The Daily Herald is moving.

“After an exhaustive search we have secured a long-term lease in the Frontier Building on 41st Street in Everett,” Herald publisher Josh O’Connor announced in a companywide email Friday.

The Daily Herald will be the majority tenant on the third floor of the south tower. Frontier Communications sold the building in November to 1800 41st Street LLC, a Delaware corporation registered in Washington. The new owner has plans to upgrade the building.

The south tower has been vacated by Frontier since the purchase, which represents half of the total square footage.

“This building is a class A business office that offers robust telecom connectivity and redundant emergency power systems, an open floor plan, lots of meeting space, ample parking, and great access and visibility for the Herald,” O’Connor wrote.

“We looked at other options within the downtown area, but those buildings couldn’t provide an open floor plan and parking was very limited,” he said.

The new address will be 1800 41st St.

The south building was built for GTE in 1981 when GTE was the Everett area’s primary telephone provider. Verizon later acquired GTE and in 2010 sold its landline assets to Frontier.

The newsroom, advertising, business office and other departments will be moved from their current location at 1213 California St., overlooking Everett’s waterfront. The move is expected to take place in January.

The Washington Post Co., which sold the newspaper to Sound Publishing earlier this year, still owns the present Herald building and is expected to list it for sale on Aug. 1.

The Herald has been at the location since 1959. With the ownership change, the newspaper now is printed at Sound Publishing’s plant near Paine Field in Everett.
