History

The site of the mall was originally a county-owned rock quarry. [2] Washington County stopped removing gravel from the site in the 1980s and began filling the property in order to prepare the land for development. [2] Plans for shopping center in the Bridgeport area where Lake Oswego, Tualatin, Durham, and Tigard meet began in 1999. [3] In 2001, Washington County sold the former Durham gravel pit to Opus Northwest and Center Oak Properties for $18.75 million. [4] [5] The 30-acre (120,000 m2) site was just west of Interstate 5 in both Tualatin and Tigard, and adjacent to Durham. [6]

Original plans called for a $163 million (USD) mixed use development with approximately 320,000 square feet (30,000 m2) of retail space and 500,000 square feet (46,000 m2) of office space. [6] These plans also included residential space and a movie theater. [7] Perkowitz + Ruth Architects helped design the village, [8] which was designed without the traditional anchor department store. [9] In 2003, Lake Oswego threatened to derail the project over concerns of congestion affecting the neighboring city. The city and Washington County settled the matter in August 2003, with Lake Oswego receiving $300,000 to use for traffic improvement projects. [10]

Before the center opened, the development was sold for around $170 million to BV CenterCal LLC. [3] Opus Northwest was the general contractor of the $80 million project. [11] Overall costs for the entire development totaled $250 million. [12] In November 2004, the first store at the open-air lifestyle center, Crate & Barrel, opened. [13] On May 19, 2005, the rest of the mall opened, [14] [15] with additional stores at the site opened in November 2005. [16] Planned residential units were never built, [17] nor was a planned underground parking structure. [18]

In 2006, the architect won an International Council of Shopping Centers Design and Development Award. [19] By 2007, the center had revenue of more than $600 per square-foot, which placed Bridgeport Village in the top five-percent of malls in the United States. [20] At that time it was also bringing in nearly 4 million shoppers each year, leading to discussions of whether to designate the area as a town center under the regional government's land use plan. [21] In April 2008, the county settled legal claims against a contractor who filled the old rock quarry and prepared the site for the mall regarding methane gas leaking at the site for $1 million. [2]
