MarkSchoenwaldNew-WebHarperCollins Christian Publishing announced today the relocation of its Zondervan publishing offices to a new building less than five miles from its current headquarters. This transition echoes Zondervan’s previous commitment to remaining in Grand Rapids, Mich., where the company has been based since its 1931 founding.

The publisher signed a multi-year lease as the new building’s sole occupant, and will begin retrofitting plans for its new home immediately. Construction is expected to begin in the fall.

Zondervan moved into its current offices in 1992, and shares the building with the corporate headquarters of Family Christian Stores. An earlier report indicated that Family plans to stay in the building.

“Our commitment to have a presence in Grand Rapids remains strong, and this new location will bring new opportunities for the future,” said Mark Schoenwald, president and CEO of HarperCollins Christian Publishing. 

The publisher’s current lease will expire Jan. 31, 2014. In July, the company notified its employees that it would not be renewing its lease.
