Re: Alexandra Hotel

Article in this week's Boston Courant.

They don't publish online, here's the 411.

Church of Scientology will list its Back Bay headquarters next month. Once it has, it will then file "final architectural plans" with the BRA for its new South End home, located at 1759-1769 Washingon Street, in the South End.

The Back Bay headquarters is assessed at $3.6 million but the church's attorney believes its value at around $17 million.

The church is proposing the addition of a floor on the five-story Alexandra Hotel. (I'd support that.)

It won't present its plans to the BRA, etc., until its Back Bay property is listed for sale, presumably because it can't move until it has the money to renovate or at least a signed P&S.
