Starbucks Signs Lease as Anchor Tenant for University Shops Retail Development in Johnson City, TN

LCRE Partners is developing University Shops in Johnson City, TN, a 14,000sf retail center at the intersection of University Pwky and West State of Franklin Road.  This important intersection and location is adjacent to East Tennessee State University, Quillen Medical College, Quillen VA Hospital, and Mountain States regional hospital.

Starbucks will lease 2,050sf on the end-cap of the phase one retail building.  The location will have a drive-through and will compliment their other successful stores in the market.  The remaining 4,200sf in phase one is available, but under negotiation with retail and restaurant tenants.

LCRE Partners is seeking regional and national tenants for retail and restaurant space for phase one and phase two of the development.  Construction will begin in March 2016, and is scheduled for completion in the Summer of 2016 for the start of the Fall Semester at ETSU.
