In Spider-Man: Homecoming,

we learn that Tony Stark has sold the Avengers Tower in Manhattan in order to buy the new Avengers facility in upstate New York.

So who bought the Avengers Tower and what do they plan to do with the building?

    I'm hoping Marvel Studios is being Sneaky and sharing the rights with Fox on the Fantastic Four. I can totally see it being the Baxter Building. – ScarlettWench Jul 9 '17 at 8:23
  • As one very misguided answer attempt stated it really sounds almost like a baxter building deal. Aside from that I'm wondering though why he had to sell it in order to buy the new one (money shouldnt be HIS problem should it?). – Thomas Jul 9 '17 at 8:44

    @Thomas: “why he had to sell it in order to buy the new one” — I suspect he didn’t. The new Avengers facility has been up-and-running since Avengers 2; while it’s possible that Avengers Tower was sold two–eight years previously and Stark Enterprises are only moving out now, I’d bet the tower sale happened independently of the new facility being built. – Paul D.

  • I honestly do not know, but the Avengers tower was initially the Stark tower correct? Perhaps it was actually an asset of his company the entire time? Maybe Pepper forced the sale with the newer facility already built?... he or she saw no reason to keep it? Or just like Stark helping out Spiderman he wanted to help the Fantastic Four get on their feet... assuming it will be the Baxter building... – Odin1806 Jul 9 '17 at 16:57

    @JAB So why not document the theories in an answer with your links to give credibility? – CodeMed Jul 21 '17 at 3:54

Well, it is not really mentioned in the movie but I would like to take a guess. It might be Norman Osborn who bought the Avengers Tower for it to become the Oscorp Headquarters. Unfortunately, I have no sources (it's just a guess!) but it seems like it is logical because we haven't seen Oscorp or we haven't heard anyone mention Oscorp industries yet but we know that it is vital for the Spider-man franchise.

  • Is there any confirmation that Oscorp will show up in the new Spider-man universe? – Edlothiad Aug 16 '17 at 8:09
  • AFAIK, there isn't yet. But I think Marvel Studios will not pass on the idea of rebooting the Green Goblin. Even though I liked Willem Dafoe's take on it, I think Marvel Studios will love to get on their hands on the Green Goblin. – Kaibutsu. Aug 16 '17 at 8:28

    This seems like little better than guesswork. There are no end of wealthy people in the Marvel universe and it could (theoretically) have been any of them – Valorum Jan 21 '18 at 16:40
  • Much as I would love your theory to be the case, this is no more than speculation. – DanDoubleL Jul 9 '18 at 21:55
