NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – Boeing wants to buy more than 1,000 acres near its plant in North Charleston.
The Charleston County Aviation Authority voted Thursday to begin the process of selling 320 acres to The Boeing Co. The price has not been set. The authority voted to give Boeing first rights of refusal on nearly 500 more acres, as well as an option to buy another 265 acres. Boeing has not announced plans for the land. But Boeing South Carolina chief counsel Mark Fava says the company doesn’t “bank” land it doesn’t plan to use.The Associated Press
