For 85 years, the small Art Deco building on the corner of Bernard Avenue and Bertram Street in downtown Kelowna housed a Christian Science reading room.
But with the sale of the building recently, the Christian Science Society says it is looking for a new location.
The building at 610 Bernard Avenue was sold for $1.44 million and, with the property zoned commercial, the lot is expected to be redeveloped as a retail centre.
The distinctive 2,115-square-foot building—the last of its design on Kelowna’s main street—includes a 1,634-square-foot basement and was also home to Christian Science Church services for many years.
On its website, the Christian Science Society says as a result of the sale, services are no longer held in the building and it is currently exploring what it calls the “possibilities for a new location that will better meet our current needs.”
The Christian Science Society has occupied the building since 1933.
