Known as Cotton Medical Center, the 115,000-square-foot medical office complex is located at 50 Bellefontaine St. in the vicinity of Huntington Memorial Hospital, and is adjacent to the upcoming Shriners Hospitals for Children that will be opening in June. The facility is situated on a 2.8-acre land parcel and encompasses a four-story 52,000-square-foot building and a five-story 63,000-square-foot building. The property’s North Tower was originally developed in 1975, while the South Tower and the facility’s parking garage were added nine years later.

Meridian purchased the medical center in 2016 for $37.5 million and has invested an additional $5 million in renovations to both the common areas and tenant improvements. Refurbishments included enhancement of the building’s signage, and augmented grounds with new landscaping and outdoor furniture. Additionally, a new café will be opening in the summer along with a new HVAC system.
