BOCA RATON, FL-Granite Meridian LLC has acquired the two-building, 131,680-sf Meridian Commercial office buildings for $27.2 million. The properties, located in the Arvida Park of Commerce, were sold by Meridian Commercial Properties.

The buildings are 100% leased on a long-term basis to LexisNexis and Cross Country Health Care. Granite Meridian is an institutional investment fund managed by New York City-based BlackRock, Inc.
