Supporting the Medical District in More Ways than ONE
Transforming a major street corner in the heart of the Medical District, Orion purchased an old gas station at Poplar and Dunlap and replaced it with an award-winning, LEED Silver® building with exterior LED color lighting which can be seen by patients in nearby hospitals. Orion CEO Daniel Weickenand said the decision was more about Memphis and less about the bottom line.
“We wanted to go beyond reactivating a dead street corner. We wanted to build something that members and the neighborhood would be proud of, and even more, would reflect the change and evolution going on in the area. For us, that meant a state-of-the-art facility with a design that would embody openness and connection to the people we serve,” stated Weickenand.
