That location would make a lot of sense. I assume they would keep the store at Washington Square and just move the service center there. Then they'd have two stores, with a centrally located service center.
It looks like this project is moving forward:
Although, apparently, there are some folks who aren't happy about it. They're not necessarily mad at Tesla, per-se, they just want to see whoever the new owner is connect the bike path.
Willamette Greenway trail link might wait decades if Tesla plan goes through - BikePortland.org
That would be so convenient for me. It's about 2.5 miles from my house
I work in the central Eastside so this will be much easier for me than going down to Tigard/Durham. I hope they have this up and running by the time the Model 3s are ready to hit Portland! however, I work in architecture and dealing with the city's Land Use and Permitting and it would not surprise me if Elon Musk could build out the Fremont factory with new tooling for the Model 3, have the Gigafactory producing Model 3 quantities of battery packs and still be waiting for the city of Portland, "the city that works", to approve this.
I'm hoping they either keep the Tigard station open. It's much easier to get to Tigard than it is to where this new one is from Eugene. I know it doesn't seem like it should be but it is.
With Tesla expanding everywhere, I would expect it's safe to assume this is a second Portland location, not replacing the Tigard store/service locations.

The Portland site made an appearance on Teslarati! Tesla has agreed to complete the willamette greenway trail.
Tesla urged by local residents to build bike path near proposed Portland Store
Good for them! I'm not surprised though.
The Land Use application was approved this week. Now on to the building department.
This is a great location! I hope it comes with 2-4 superchargers as well The area is right next door (kinda) to the original (kinda) Spaghetti Factory!
It's going to be harder to catch a movie while the car is in service than before.
Are they closing the original service center? With the 3 on the way, I wonder if they should keep it open.
That's unknown at the moment. I agree that they're going to need more than one service center in the area. Probably more than one in Oregon. That said, the two would be really close together and wouldn't be much of a benefit for people who live on the other side of town or farther south.
I'd love it if they put one in Eugene.
With the number of Teslas in the area, I hope they keep both service centers. The new one will be much more convenient for me.
I've asked about this when I've been in for service and been told that they expect both the service center and the mall store to closed when the new location opens. But the folks I've talked to said that they don't really know for sure and may not until the new place is open.
I hope they keep the old service center open too...
When I picked up my car last March my DS indicated they would probably be moving; that the current SC location wasn't really suitable in the long term.
Nice. This new location is centrally located in Portland and will be closer for me. Ideally , I would prefer if they have a service center in clackamas area .
I can't wait until it is finish so I can leave work early and schedule a test drive next year since I work in 'NW
Yesterday an additional Land Use application as submitted for additional signage square footage. It is the same type 2 process they went them for the main LU application that was applied for in Feb and approved in June, which is about as fast as portlands BDS moves on anything. Expect the same for this, late fall. Also the city has stopped allowing building permits to be submitted when there are undecided LU cases. It's too bad 1) the signage increase they are asking for here was not included in the original. Or 2) they didn't get the building permit in before the signage LU application.
Interesting. Is there information about the new application online?
