Boeing Co. is seeking a new local factory to house engineers and assembly workers for the 737 MAX work it is bringing to the Lowcountry.

The company began soliciting bids from a small group of real estate developers and landlords for the project about a month ago.

. The firm that wins the job won’t have much time. Boeing wants to move in to the proposed plant by next June, according to its request for proposals.

The company said it needs a site that can accommodate a 220,000-square-foot building and have enough land to expand the structure to 600,000 square feet.

Boeing also has said it will need 300 parking spaces with the ability to add 400 more later.

The request calls for 60,000 square feet of offices.

The site would have to be within 20 miles of Boeing South Carolina’s 787 Dreamliner campus at Charleston International Airport.

The company wants to finalize the lease by July 31.

I’m surprised that Obastard hasn’t gotten with the unions and stopped Boeing from opening operations in a right to work state. He’s done it before.

They should have sent the “Disney” team in to do the buying. Disney purchased half of Florida before the word got out and the prices skyrocketed.
