Plans for Portland Town Center call for 200,000 square feet of retail space spread across 17 pad sites. The site will that will be anchored by a 128,500-square-foot Target store, “Target is a highly coveted retailer and a magnet for the restaurants and retailers that people enjoy,” Meredith McLeod-Cobb says. “When completed, Portland Town Center will be home to about 15 new-to-market restaurants in all dining categories,” as well as 300 multifamily units.

The design team includes Osborn & Vane Architects Inc. and Terra Associates Inc, and Arch-Con Corp. is the general contractor. Plains Capital Bank provided construction financing for the 45-acre project. The city contributed $12.8 million in tax incentives. Construction is scheduled to begin in November.
