Allston is getting some new tenants. The New England branch of the Church of Scientology has purchased an office building on Lincoln Street, according to The Boston Globe.

The $15 million deal included a few surrounding properties as well.

In November, the church officially put the Hotel Alexandra in the South End up for sale, a historic building which it purchased with the intent of converting it into its new headquarters in 2008. That work was never completed.

The church is currently renting a space in Quincy, where it will stay until renovations are complete on the new building in Allston. There is no set move-in date yet, said the Globe.
