  1. Good, the members in Arezzo (Italy - my first city in the mission field) won't have as far to travel once the branch is meeting in Montevarchi.

  2. The Melbourne 2nd Branch is the second CBD based congregation, the other is a Chinese speaking branch. They meet in the first dedicated meeting space in the Melbourne CBD. Hopefully this might see some growth and produce enough wards to warrant a permanent building. They currently meet in a rented floor in an office building. If the Church were to build it would be the first CBD building in Australia I think.
