Scientology's building heads upward - 2000-03-29
The crowning feature of the $45-million building will be a 15-story tower, visible from blocks away, topped by an eight-point Scientology cross made of bronze.
Construction is expected to be completed in two years.
The church began construction in November 1998 with a foundation permit. But city officials did not want to issue a standard building permit for the rest of the building until they were satisfied the church would provide for parking.
