Pat Riemer said the downtown location is secure until at least 2027.
She said that JJC board Chairman Bob Wunderlich "has assured us that he's going to honor our lease with the Roberts family, which goes to 2022, and he's going to add on another five years."
Wunderlich said Friday that JJC has completed the acquisition of the property, but the terms of the deal leave it in the hands of the Roberts family for a matter of months. Once JJC has control, he said, the Chicken-N-Spice lease will be extended.
He said JJC primarily acquired the property because it wanted control of Webster Street, which the city plans to close. The street runs between JJC's new downtown campus building and Chicken-N-Spice.
