Crystal Cathedral Changing Hands

New, 4 comments

Garden Grove's Philip Johnson-designed Crystal Cathedral and related buildings are being sold as part of a bankruptcy exit strategy for the church, reports the LA Times: "Under the proposed plan, the 40-acre campus would be sold to a real estate investment group, which alleviates financial pressure from a $36-million mortgage...The church also has a guaranteed option of leasing the campus for 15 years. After four years, the church can buy back the core portions, including the 10,000-pane cathedral, the 13-story Tower of Hope, the welcome center and the cemetery." Image via Wikipedia [LAT]
