Knox Co. Mayor Tim Burchett announced yesterday that the county has issued a formal RFP for the sale and redevelopment of the historic Andrew Johnson Hotel building in downtown Knoxville. The property currently houses Knox Co. Schools and Public Building Authority offices. The county is looking at options for relocating those offices and the RFP invites bidders to include recommendations.
The AJ property is 18 stories, approximately 140,000 square feet. Acceptable uses include but are not limited to general residential, live/work mixed use, hotel, office or retail. The RFP states that "A fundamental aspect of the reuse of the Andrew Johnson Building should be the preservation of its historic character."
The RFP also states that "There are no public funds appropriated or planned for this facility." The eventual sale must be approved by Knox Co. Commission.
