Located in a 19th century brick and concrete former printing plant, SiriusXM’s corporate headquarters and broadcast and recording facility contains more than 100 individual radio studios.

The Live Performance Studio is the keystone of the state-of-the-art digital broadcast complex, and is one of the most sophisticated recording facilities in the United States. The entire studio and control room are detached from the building structure by vibration isolators. Sized to accommodate a range of performances — from soloists to small orchestras — the studio was designed to the highest level of acoustic engineering. It also serves as a performance space for visiting artists and can hold audiences of up to 50 people.
