SEATTLE-Those who follow @GlobeStcom on Twitter and @GlobeStLIVE may have seen a post teasing the announcement, but GlobeSt.com has learned that Amazon has closed on the $1.16-billion purchase of its global headquarters here from Vulcan Real Estate. The South Lake Union development campus, which is comprised of eleven buildings across 1.8 million square feet, was listed for sale in August. Amazon entered into a purchase and sale agreement in October, as GlobeSt.com reported.

Vulcan plans to invest proceeds from the sale toward continued revitalization efforts of Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, where it has developed nearly 30 acres of land over the past 10 years.
