Cotton Medical Campus Expansion
The Cotton Medical Campus is located in the South Fair Oaks corridor of Pasadena, south of Huntington Hospital Medical Center. This is a neighborhood zoned by the City to encourage medical facilities that work synergistically with the hospital. Recent demand for medical office square footage in this neighborhood has lead the owner/operator to charge PDA with exploring options for providing additional medical office and parking on the campus. The existing campus consists of two, four story medical office buildings of approximately 60,000sf each. Parking for 450 vehicles is currently provided, primarily in an existing subterranean garage with some existing surface parking. PDA’s solution adds two new medical office buildings. The proposed 68,000 square foot West MOB would be built over an existing plaza/garage structure and would bridge across the existing Alessandro Place roadway. The proposed 42,000 square foot South MOB would be a podium type structure built over the south portion of the existing garage structure. In order to accommodate the additional 370 parking stalls required by this expansion, a new three level subterranean parking structure would be built below the existing Alessandro Place. A vacation of the street from City ownership would be necessary for this option.
