In The Region:
The Episcopal Diocese of Ohio may have found a buyer for an historic, but shuttered, church: The Cleveland Clinic.

The Church of the Transfiguration was built around 1901, but has been abandoned for two years.  It sits just north of a Cleveland Clinic parking garage. 

The Cleveland Landmarks Commission will hear a demolition request from the diocese at its meeting this Thursday.

No purchase price has been disclosed, but the building is listed online for about $1.5 million.

Local developers estimate repairs to the church could cost more than $6 million.

The Plain Dealer reports that neither side has commented on what would replace the church. The Cleveland Clinic recently closed its guesthouse a few blocks away, which is being replaced with a new medical building for Case Western Reserve University.
