Church of Scientology new $19m headquarters to be built in Sydney’s north

The Daily Telegraph of Australia carried this story today:

THE Church of Scientology will build its new southern hemisphere base at the former National Acoustic Laboratory site in Chatswood.

A regional planning panel approved the project yesterday, with Willoughby Council supportive of the church’s plans for 126 Greville St.

It will be an “Advanced Church” facility, one of five in the world that trains the senior ministers for the churches in the rest of Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Taiwan.

The 3.5ha of land in West Chatswood cost the church $37 million and it plans to spend another $19 million making it “fit for purpose”.
