A Johnson City building that had been used for dental offices will be put back into use.

The two-story structure at 190 Main Street was acquired by the Binghamton University Foundation last year.

About two dozens properties were purchased by the foundation north of the university's Health Sciences campus centered on Corliss Avenue.

Most of the residential and commercial buildings have been demolished to make way for future green space. But the university is planning to make use of the Main Street building where three dentists had practiced until June 2020.

University President Harvey Stenger said it's a "very attractive building" which "has a great presence on Main Street."

Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program Friday, Stenger said various uses are being considered for the building. He said student services and Johnson City administrative offices could be located there.

The building is located west of an M&T Bank branch office.
