Renovations for Scientology's planned Mexico City 'Advanced Org' halted by local pols - 2017-05-02
(Scientology's rendering of the finished Advanced Org project.)
In 2008 Scientology purchased the vacant Palmas Plaza shopping mall in the tiny Lomas del Olivo neighborhood west of Mexico City. They announced to the Scientology world that it would become the home of AOSH LATAM, the Advanced Org Saint Hill for Latin America, a Sea Org base devoted to delivering some of the upper levels of Scientology. Not an Ideal Org such as the one in central Mexico City, it would be a total renovation to the standard of other Ideal Advanced Orgs and plans to build a private hotel on top of the mall were promoted. But they didn't let the neighbors in on the plan.
