Neighbor of Portland chapter of Church of Scientology: A strip club — Daily Journal of Commerce (Oregon)
Type: Press
Author(s): Aaron Spencer
Source: Daily Journal of Commerce (Oregon)
The Portland chapter of the Church of Scientology this month purchased the Sherlock Building, where it plans to move. But something about the location of the building sticks out: It's across the street from a strip club. Namely, it's across the street from a male nude strip club called Silverado. The club is ostensibly gay (a rainbow flag hangs outside its door), but straight women also go there. I called the president of the Portland chapter of Scientology, the Rev. Steven ...

TAMPA - The Church of Scientology is poised to become steward of perhaps the most iconic brick-and-mortar symbol of this fabled cigar town's history — a move that could signal a greater presence for Scientologists just outside downtown Tampa. The church recently purchased Ybor Square for about $7 million, records show. The three-building complex at 1911 N. 13th St., between Eighth and Ninth avenues, is the former home of what was once the largest cigar factory in the world. Built in ...

When the Church of Scientology bought the Stevens Building in 2008, it told tenants to vacate when their leases ended. Most of them did. Now the Portland building is 42 percent vacant, another 20 percent is used for storage, and the church no longer plans to move in. “It would be nice to have it back to where it was in 2006 - about three-quarters full,” said Steven Ballinger, who has maintained a Princeton University Press sales office in the building ...
