Historic train station renovation nearly complete

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - A new restaurant for downtown Johnson City is nearing completion.

The old train station is being transformed into a hub of economic activity. Tupelo Honey Cafe will be the first business to move into the historic building.

Recent renovations have kept the building looking like it did back in the 1900s.

Greg Cox, a developer with the project, says construction is on schedule. "We'll be finished with the building towards the end of May, we'll be finished with their build-out. We have broken the building up into a couple of phases, so we'll probably do the two-story section, going through the process of the architecture and engineering right now," he said.

There's no word on what the other part of the building will be used for, but that phase is expected to be complete by mid-summer.
