JC Downtown Centre to get ETSU as new tenant
Johnson City’s Downtown Centre will be getting a new tenant just months after Northeast State Community College’s departure. Johnson City commissioners unanimously approved a two-year lease with ETSU. The new lease is set to begin Dec. 15. ETSU will pay a total of $10,500 a month to use almost 38,000 square feet of the building and the 343 attached parking garage spaces during weekday business hours. The lease still has to be finalized and signed by both parties. The new arrangement will improve the Johnson City Development Authority’s monthly bottom line and open up parking options in downtown.
