Columbus, Ohio - Ideal Org Building

Post by ChefXenu » Sun Mar 23, 2008 6:13 pm

The Church of Scientology in Columbus has purchased or is purchasing the old Time Warner building at 1266 Dublin Road. The old downtown org at 30 N. High Street is still open for business/services.

It appears they are using the ideal org building for some events, probably either receptions for big donors or an additional fund raising campaign.

I doubt this will turn into Columbus's version of CW's Super-Power building, as the downtown org does have for sale signs in the windows even though they are still open.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2k0rfdPa6Gc - My video of a visit to both the old and new (ideal) org buildings, in which the receptionist at the downtown org tells me they are not closing (this was before the "for sale" signs went up so I don't think she lied, I think she was not informed by her superiors).

I will update this thread as I learn more.

Same since 1996. So 12 years has passed and it looks the same in the windows. I guess stats haven't really been "up".

News article about the Ideal Org move in today's (3/29) Dispatch (B3 below the fold) says their "Plans call for an opening by mid-2009."

Church of Scientology needs bigger building
Officials want city to rezone former Time Warner site

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
The Church of Scientology plans to move into a former Time Warner building on Dublin Road on the Northwest Side, near Grandview Heights.

The church has to move out of its Downtown headquarters, 30 N. High St., because there isn't enough room, said the Rev. John Carmichael, president of the Church of Scientology of New York.

The new church will be used for Sunday services, classes and counseling, Carmichael said. Plans call for an opening by mid-2009.

The church asked the city to change the zoning on the building so it could be used as a religious facility, said Cynthia Rickman, Development Department spokeswoman.

City Council is expected to vote in mid-April on the change, which was approved by the development committee.

The building covers 30,698 square feet and has 175 parking spaces, Rickman said.

Besides Columbus, there are Scientology churches in Cleveland and Cincinnati.

Earlier this month, a group of about 80 anti-Scientology protesters waved signs, chanted and handed out fliers outside the Downtown church. Group members covered their faces and refused to identify themselves while decrying what they called cultlike treatment of Scientology church members.

Lovely April weather was a good excuse to get a better look at the grounds, building, and especially the easement (public property near the road) where we will be protesting when and if the Corporation of $cientology of Central Ohio moves in.

Here it is for your viewing enjoyment:

Update Aug 2011: Still no sign that they have begun or are preparing to begin the required renovations to turn the dilapidated old Time Warner building into a functional, much less "ideal" org. The only use it gets is as a place to set up folding tables and chairs for their more and more infrequent fund-raising events. They have also been unable to sell the main org downtown.

Columbus will be so flattered that it was lacking sanity all these years.
