The Cotton's Building is a 3-story, 18,000 square-foot commercial building located at 400 19th Street, at the corner of Avenue D, in downtown Ensley.

The building originally housed Cotton's department store, which had been founded in 1922 by Mitchell and Ida Cotton. The business remained in the family until it closed in 2012.

Treś Washington acquired the building in 2016 for his Washington Law firm and Treś’ Fine Clothing business. He also rents space to other tenants.
