Unico Properties, a subsidiary of a Seattle-based private equity real estate investment firm, is the buyer.

While the company did not disclose the purchase price, a person with knowledge of the sale put it at $100 million.

Unico said it bought the site for its location near commuter rail, the Southcenter mall and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport as a "transit-oriented investment," according to a news release.

It's the latest in a series of real estate divestments made by the planemaker as it slashed costs during the pandemic-driven aviation downturn.

Besides the headquarters building, the site included another building that once housed Boeing’s state-of-the-art training facilities and full-flight simulators.
