The Church of Scientology has purchased an office property in Melville for $15.2 million.The California-based church bought the 62,500-square-foot office building on 5.5 acres at 263 Old Country Road. Built in 1999, the two-story office building, which has parking for about 250 vehicles, was delivered vacant. The property had been the longtime home of ADI Global, a distributor of security products, before the company relocated to 275 Broadhollow Road in 2021.Scientology, which owns properties throughout the U.S. and in several other countries totaling many millions of square feet, according to published reports, has been leasing offices in Bethpage, but the Melville property is its first major commercial real estate acquisition on Long Island.Public records list the property taxes on 263 Old Country Road at $285,065, and while Scientology is a tax-exempt organization, it has yet to apply for tax-exempt status on the Melville office property, according to the Town of Huntington Assessor’s Office.A property management official with the Scientology organization did not respond to requests for comment on the Melville purchase, which closed last month.
