Dex One has leased 6,508 square feet of retail space at Columbia Tech Center, Building 601, for the company’s new Dex One Solution Center. NAI NBS’ Tamara Fuller represented the lessee.
The new location serves as the first Dex One Solutions Center in the country. The center, which combines a local Dex One office with a unique storefront presence, is designed to help local businesses and consumers interact directly with Dex One’s marketing consultants. In addition to on-site consultation, the storefront features kiosks and interactive displays to help visitors learn about Dex One’s online, print, voice-enabled and mobile solutions. More >

It’s been a slow couple of years for new development in Portland, so the fact that two new retail projects recently broke ground is great news.
In late July, Gramor Development broke ground on Progress Ridge, a $60 million, 325,000 sf retail development in Beaverton-Tigard. Big Al’s Family Bowling and Entertainment Center at Progress Ridge just opened in August, and construction on the rest of the center should be finished by fall 2011. Tenants include New Seasons Market, Cinetopia, Rivermark Credit Union, and more. More >
