For your Sunday delectation, a church that is not a church.
On the corner of Holly Street and Marengo a block from City Hall, this one-time church-turned-office building appears to be another victim of either the recession or greed or both. There are a few of these around town--landlords who turned out tenants when they thought they could get a higher rent only to see the bottom drop out before they could fill those empty spaces again. Some of these places remain empty. Though it's not a generous sentiment for a Sunday, I don't hesitate to say it serves those landlords right.
But a healthy city has thriving businesses, not empty rental space. The building might be under new management so if I were looking for an office I'd start here. This unique building has different types of space for rent. I think the sanctuary's available. (It's a serene space, as you might expect. I used to practice yoga there.) The Holly Street Bar & Grill also occupies part of the building. Is it still in business? The web news is sketchy.
Don't be concerned that a church or two is up for sale or rent in Pasadena. We've got one every block or so and it appears attendance is good.
