Two Wichita men have acquired the former Boeing Co. site in the southern part of the city and plan to fill it with new office and aviation tenants.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Air Capital Flight Line closed Wednesday on the acquisition of the 413-acre site.
In January 2012, Boeing announced it would close its Wichita facilities and move work to Oklahoma City, San Antonio and the Seattle area.
Johnny Stevens of Air Capital Flight Line called the 1.9 million square feet of manufacturing, office, storage and hangar space “a great asset.” His partner, Dave Murfin, said it was a “civic opportunity.”
Stevens and Murfin declined to disclose the financial terms of the acquisition. A Boeing spokeswoman declined to disclose the terms as well.
