Airbus North America in Old Town is waiting to hear whether it will win additional work for its Wichita engineering center.
The proposal has been presented.
“We’re waiting approval and going through the process,” said Bill Greer, head of the Wichita site.
He expects to know by the first week in December.
Last month, the Wichita City Council voted to sell the former Kansas Sports Hall of Fame building at 238 N. Mead for $1.43 million to Dave Burk’s Marketplace Properties to make room for the additional Airbus work.
The deal is contingent on a lease with Airbus, which wants to create 100 engineering jobs over three years to study repair and maintenance of its aircraft. Burk is already the landlord for Airbus at its current site at 213 N. Mead.
