Toronto Scientology location boarded up as controversial organization plans renovation - 2013-01-25
The Church of Scientology's Toronto headquarters at 696 Yonge St. were shuttered last week, the windows and doors covered in plywood and its large signs covered with paper.
But there's no need for Cruise - the church's most prominent member - to swoop in, jump on couches and save the day just yet; the controversial church is not closing up shop.
In the works instead is a spiffy renovation for the worn eight-storey structure the church has inhabited since 1979. A city spokesperson said the organization submitted an application for interior demolition work on Jan. 15.
