The Boeing Co. has begun marketing its vast Wichita complex of buildings as the aircraft maker prepares to end its operations in the city.
The Wichita Eagle reports the company offered a tour Thursday of three large office buildings -- the first of its 97 structures to go on the market. About 40 commercial real estate brokers and economic development officials took part in the open house.
The office buildings will be available for occupancy later this year, with hangars and other facilities to be available by the end of 2014. The office buildings range from about 100,000 to more than 300,000 square feet of space.
Boeing announced last year that it was closing the Wichita plant and moving work to Oklahoma, Texas and the Pacific Northwest.
