Church of Scientology buys Miami office for $7M from U.S. Century Bank
The Church of Scientology of Florida now owns an office building in Miami thanks to U.S. Century Bank .
The nonprofit group, which is based in Hollywood and affiliated with the national religious movement founded by L. Ron Hubbard, acquired the former Renzi building at 2220 S. Dixie Highway from the Doral-based bank for $7 million. The amount is more than the $5.9 million mortgage the bank used to foreclose on the property in 2011 – taking it away from developer Renzo Renzi.
