The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles has sold its 12-story administrative headquarters building to help pay last year’s $660 million settlement with people alleging sex abuse by clergy, a spokesman said Tuesday.
The Archdiocesan Catholic Center was sold to Jamison Properties of Los Angeles for $31 million, archdiocese spokesman Tod Tamberg said.
Staffers who oversee the archdiocese’s cemeteries will move to office space on the grounds of a cemetery, Tamberg said. Others will consolidate in four of the building’s floors that church officials will lease from the new owner, Tamberg said.
Tamberg did not know what would be on the building’s other eight floors.
