Blog: There Goes the Neighborhood - 2010-12-16
Well, in addition to anything else, I like to keep up with what's happening with my local Portland Idle Org.
To recap, in 2008, after regging every public they could find to empty their bank accounts, take out second mortgages and rob their children's college funds, the Church bought the historic 12-story Stevens Building in downtown Portland in an all-cash deal for $5.38 million.
Of course, they emptied the building out, encouraging the existing tenants of the building to move out before their leases expired. It was all rush, rush, rush to start the renovations.
