This Scientology-Owned Penthouse Supposedly Being Built for Tom Cruise Looks Absolutely Bonkers
Tom Cruise may be setting up camp in the Sunshine State.
The Jack Reacher star is rumored to be planning to move into a two-story penthouse located in a building owned by the Church of Scientology at its home base of Clearwater, Fla.
According to The Underground Bunker blogger Tony Ortega, Moises Agami, the building’s developer and a devoted member of the Church of Scientology, submitted plans to convert the property’s top two floors into one giant apartment. When asked by area developers about the project, a Church of Scientology official admitted that the luxury residence is to be set aside for Cruise.
Dubbed SkyView, the swanky condominium, which was first built in 1960 as a four-story bank, boasts nine floors and sits just blocks away from the Church of Scientology’s campus. Plans for Cruise’s new abode, which were submitted to the city, show that his new bachelor pad will feature a private walkway called “the air bridge,” a car elevator, a massive garage with enough space for nine vehicles, a recreation area, a pool, and an entire room dedicated to a flight simulator. (Maybe Cruise just reeeeally likes Top Gun?)
A listing for the building also advertises that residents will have access to a rooftop pool, a children’s playroom, and a “sophisticated, one-of-a-kind lounge” converted from the building’s former bank vault.
Though nothing has been confirmed by the actor’s rep, it does seem like the 54-year-old is preparing for a big move. In the last few years, he sold off his Beverly Hills home, his Hollywood Hills estate, two New York properties, a house in England, and a $59 million property in Telluride, Colo.
