Subaru of America Inc. has chosen Gresham for its new master distribution center.

The 600,000 square-foot center is relocating from Japan to the United States. 

The center will be the most significant development to date at the Port of Portland's Gresham Vista Business Park.

"We are thrilled to see Subaru call Gresham home," Gresham Mayor Shane Bemis said of the development. "This is a very important win for Gresham, and a great win for the entire state and region. We have worked tremendously hard for years to improve Gresham's competitiveness, and Subaru's decision validates our efforts and aggressiveness in this arena. Longtime Gresham residents will immediately understand the significance of seeing a huge new industrial development on the Gresham Vista site, bringing jobs and vital economic investment to town." 

The new distribution center is projected to bring 50 new jobs to Gresham, according to Subaru of America.

Trammell Crow Company is building the distribution center with Clarion Partners and plan to start building in August 2015.

Subaru is leasing the space and is anticipating the center to be open by October 2016.
