Downtown Cincinnati's former Scientology building to be converted to apartments - 2015-02-25
The downtown Cincinnati building that was once the home of the Church of Scientology of Ohio is set to undergo a $6 million renovation into market-rate apartments.
The building, located at 211 W. Fourth St., will be completely renovated into 39 apartments and two store-front retail spaces. Walnut Street Parking Inc. purchased the building for $650,000 in September. Karen Blatt, one of the owners of Walnut Street Parking, said this will be this company's first rehab project, but Blatt and her family have been involved in redeveloping Cincinnati real estate for years.
