BOSTON-A prime block of buildings in the city’s emerging Seaport District has been sold to a Natick-based firm, has learned. Farnsworth Stillings LP paid $120.5 million for the 10 properties encompassing 380,000 sf, all of which are leased to Thomson Financial Inc. through 2014. TF Boston Funding Co. is the seller.

Efforts to contact the new owners were not immediately successful, while calls to the brokers at CB Richard Ellis were also not returned. Nonetheless, the transaction has been confirmed, and provides the buyers entry into what many see as the city’s next frontier.

Farnsworth Stillings is owned by real estate operators James Carlin III and John Hueber, who are better known locally as the owners of Crosspoint Associates. The firm has a prime office building in Waltham as well.
