This 7,000 SF vacant building sits on the border of Downtown Orlando and College Park at 709 Edgewater Drive [GMap] and was once the Center of Spiritual Living, a part of the Divine Science movement.  The price has dropped almost $3 M to now stand at $1.25M.

Divine Science was a belief system founded by Ernest Holmes in the ’20s, via a book he wrote called, The Science of Mind, which influenced generations of metaphysical thinkers and self-help gurus. Holmes later founded the Church of Religious Science.

This church has been vacant for a number of years but it still has some interesting bones to it. It also happens to sit on an interesting location only blocks away from the new Arena and future site of the Creative Village, as well as a new condo development that we’ve written about HERE. It also sits on the corner of Edgewater Drive and Colonial and could potentially be a gateway property to College Park. Also, it is listed as being in the Central Business District.

It is estimated that the average traffic volume on Edgewater Drive is 18,000-20,000 cars, daily.

The lot is .42 acres and is zoned as commercial, has 19 to 30 parking spaces (according to the official listing) and houses just the one building. The church is concrete block, and houses has two offices, four meeting rooms, four restrooms, 22 foot ceilings and three separate AC units. The roof was replaced approximately six years ago.
