CONTRIBUTED PHOTO: EASTWIND DEVELOPMENT – Eastwind Development, owned by the Yoshida Group, has big plans for the former industrial site in Troutdale

Troutdale Oregon may have a whole new look soon. The 8-acres of land behind the outlet mall, west of the Sandy River has a lot of people planning and preparing for big things ahead. However, there is much to be done before we see any signs of construction. Read more about this project below.

Eastwind, a subsidiary of the Yoshida Group, plans to buy the city’s portion of the land and market the entire area for development of a luxury hotel complex, restaurant, spa and recreation area.
However, as made clear by Eastwind project manager, Ron Garzini, at a meeting at City Hall on Tuesday, March 18, there is a lot that needs to be done before developers can move forward with the plan.
To add to the pressure, Craig Ward, Troutdale city manager, said the city must commit to the bond revenue it needs to finance renewal of the site and installation of public infrastructure.
The city has until Dec. 1, 2015, to make that commitment.
