The center opened on May 19, 2005 and is located in one of the Portland metropolitan area's most affluent areas.

The site of the mall was originally a county-owned rock quarry.cite news|title=County, contractor settle over methane gas problem|last=Gorman|first=Kathleen|date=April 16, 2008|work=The Oregonian|pages=E5|accessdate=2008-09-17] Washington County stopped removing gravel from the site in the 1980s and began filling the property in order to prepare the land for development. Plans for shopping center in the Bridgeport area where Lake Oswego, Tualatin, Durham, and Tigard meet began in 1999.Culverwell, Wendy. [ “Pricey deals underscore rebound in real estate”,] "Portland Business Journal", January 28 2005.] In 2001, Washington County sold the former Durham gravel pit to Opus Northwest and Center Oak Properties for $18.75 million.

[ “Developers eyeing Durham quarry site”,] "Portland Business Journal", June 8 2001.]

Original plans called for a USD $163 million mixed use development with approximately 320,000 square feet of retail space and 500,000 square feet of office space. These plans also included residential space and a movie theater. [Brenneman, Kristina. [ “Back to Main Street”,] "Portland Business Journal", June 22 2001.] Perkowitz + Ruth Architects helped design the village, [Stout, Heidi J. [ "Long Beach architecture firm opens in Portland",] "Portland Business Journal", December 12 2003.] which was designed without the traditional anchor department store.Goldfield, Robert. [ “'Anchors away' at malls”,] "Portland Business Journal", June 25 2004.] In 2003, Lake Oswego threatened to derail the project over concerns of congestion affecting the neighboring city. The city and Washington County settled the matter in August 2003, with Lake Oswego receiving USD $300,000 to use for traffic improvement projects.

Before the center opened, the development was sold for around $170 million to BV CenterCal LLC. Opus Northwest was the general contractor of the USD $80 million project.

[Culverwell, Wendy. [ “Bridgeport spurs retailing revival”,] "Portland Business Journal", July 20 2007.] At that time it was also bringing in nearly 4 million shoppers each year, leading to discussions of whether to designate the area as a town center under the regional government's land use plan.
