Downtown Center in Johnson City could be used by ETSU
The recently vacated Downtown Centre in Johnson City could provide a temporary home for some East Tennessee State University functions over the next few years. Johnson City Assistant City Manager Randy Trivette said ETSU is the potential tenant first mentioned on July 28 at a Johnson City Development Authority meeting. The Authority owns the Downtown Centre, which was leased by Northeast State Community College from 2015 until the beginning of this month. ETSU has several major construction projects underway, or planned, that could create a need for some temporary space.
