Inside the $145 million Scientology HQ in Clearwater, Florida

There’s something both amusing and intriguing about Scientology. Amusing because it was founded by L. Ron Hubbard and intriguing because everything is so hush-hush about this organization. But what’s not hush-hush is the amount of money that went into creating the Scientology Headquarters in Clearwater, Florida.

This gigantic site cost a whopping $145,000,000 to put together. But considering Scientology has a large celeb following, it’s probably pocket change to these guys.

Take a look at these pics to see just what $145M will get you these days. Spaceship-style bookstores, spaceship-style offices, spaceship-style coffee kiosks, and really large vases filled with flowers.
