Lincoln Center is a multi-building office complex in Tigard, Oregon, United States. Opened in 1981, the six-building complex was built over a decade and includes the 12-story Lincoln Tower, the tallest building in Washington County.cite news|title=Earthquake drill will shake up response agencies|last=Danks|first=Holly|date=April 1, 2003|work=The Oregonian|pages=C1|accessdate=2008-08-17] Located on S.W. Greenburg Road at Oregon Route 217, Lincoln Center is adjacent to the Washington Square shopping mall in the Portland metropolitan area.


Developed by the Trammell Crow Company beginning in 1980, the first building at Lincoln Center was completed in 1981. Additional buildings were completed in 1985, 1988, and 1989. The complex was annexed by Tigard in 1986 after a state commission decided in their favor over Beaverton and Portland. [cite news|title=Washington Square still strong, profitable 20 years after debut|last=Manning|first=Jeff|date=August 11, 1994|work=The Oregonian|pages=R7|accessdate=2008-08-17] In 1990, Trammell Crow sold the property to the Japanese firm Seiyu International Corporation, headed by Yashimitsu Misawa, for $120 million.Mayes, Steve. $2-million payday exacts a toll of grief. "The Oregonian", May 3 1992, Business, p. A1.]

Misawa was assisted in the transaction by state representative and former Tigard mayor Tom Brian, who received a $2 million dollar commission for the sale.Mayes, Steve. Ethics panel drops case against Brian. "The Oregonian", October 17 1992.] Brian faced formal ethics violations for his role and for accepting campaign contributions from the company and Misawa by the state, as well as charges by the Oregon Real Estate Agency for operating without a license, and a lawsuit by Misawa for an inflated sale price. He settled the lawsuit with Misawa and repaid part of the $2 million commission while Misawa was later arrested in Japan for various fraud charges concerning this and other real estate transactions. The ethics charges against Brian were latter dismissed.

In December 1991, Seiyu Corporation sold the complex to Sanyo Finance Company Ltd. for $102.7 million. [Mayes, Steve. Japanese finance company buys office park in Tigard.
