This unique 1.1-acre site, home to the late “Chicken Barn,” was among some of Meridian’s first and most important agricultural distribution and processing businesses. Contiguous with the railroad tracks and original town center, the site is hosting new uses that complement and announce the importance of the Downtown area of Meridian.
Obvious advantages are the proximity to City Hall, gateway presence on the newly reconstructed Main Street and walkable connection to the Main / Second / Broadway / Pine quadrant.
Keller Associates, a 60-plus employee civil engineering firm chose to locate their new three-story headquarters building on a portion of the property. Retail West Properties has two additional building pads available on a ground lease or build-to-suit basis.
Retail West Properties is extremely encouraged by the alignment of Meridian City leadership, the Meridian Chamber of Commerce, Meridian Development Corporation and Meridian Downtown Business Association in their combined ideas and support for the “Old Town” vicinity.
Business and property owners in the area are united and eager to foster events, re-merchandising, and special promotions to help brand this “new” area and create exciting improvements. 450 new downtown apartment units are in the planning stage or under construction within a ¼ mile radius of Trackside.
