Gresham, Oregon has been selected by Subaru of America to be the location of a new 600,000 square-foot master distribution center. This distribution center is being relocated from Japan to the United States. It will also be the main tenant and the most significant development at the Port of Portland’s Gresham Vista Business Park.

"We are thrilled to see Subaru call Gresham home," Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis said of the development. "This is a very important win for Gresham, and a great win for the entire state and region. We have worked tremendously hard for years to improve Gresham's competitiveness, and Subaru's decision validates our efforts and aggressiveness in this arena. Longtime Gresham residents will immediately understand the significance of seeing a huge new industrial development on the Gresham Vista site, bringing jobs and vital economic investment to town."

Trammell Crow Company will be constructing this new master distribution center in a joint venture with Clarion Partners. It is expected to sit on 40 acres, which will also allow for expansion of up to another 235,000 square feet in the future if needed. They are currently expected to break ground on this project in August.
