Mother Hubbard: The Scientology Celeb Centre on Buckner's Still for Sale
"We've had a lot of tire-kickers, obviously," he says, referring to folks just curious about touring the facility. "But with the market changing, it's been tough. And now, we're hoping to sell it to someone who will potentially remodel it." It's on the market for $750,000.
As for the reason behind the sale, the Scientologists had hoped to move into its new digs in Las Colinas in 2006; now, "we plan to be moved at the end of February," says the woman who answered the phone at the center this morning. "There's lots of expansion happening," she says. And to what does she attribute that? "Probably the re-release of the original versions of all the books that were done a year ago," she says. "People studying them and going, 'When I use this in my life, it makes my life go better.'" --Robert Wilonsky
