WWCD (102.5 FM) will swap out its current Brewery District digs for a new location down the street.

The alternative rock station has announced it will move from the Worly Building to the Swiss Chalet Party Haus, 1036 S. Front St.

The independent station, known as CD101 until a recent change on the dial, has been in its current spot for 15 years.

It presents a mixed bag of news for the historic Worly Building. The entertainment troupe Shadowbox recently announced it was moving to the property, 503 S. Front St. It will take over 29,000 square feet of space of the building, located at the corner of Front and Liberty streets. The entire move is expected to take place by July.

Shadowbox's relocation plans presented space concerns for the radio station, said its general manager, Randy Malloy. At issue was the "Big Room," a performance space that hosted national touring acts, "offering listeners a one-of-a-kind concert experience," Malloy said.

"Ultimately, given the space requirements for Shadowbox, we would not have been able to keep the 'Big Room' to remain in our current space," he said in a prepared statement.

Joe Sugar, general counsel for Arshot Investment Corp., the property's landlord, said he is sorry to see the radio station go.

"We regret that, despite our best efforts, we were unable to find a suitable way to accommodate the space requirements of both (WWCD) and Shadowbox in the Worly Building," he said. "We are very pleased, however, that (WWCD) will remain headquartered in the Brewery District. Their presence will continue to contribute to an ever-increasing mix of vibrant uses in the area."

The WWCD transition is expected to take place at the end of March.
