PORTLAND, Ore. — In-N-Out Burger paid $3.3 million to purchase property next to Bridgeport Village in Tualatin, the Portland Business Journal reported Friday.
The property is located at 17070 Southwest 72nd Avenue near a freeway exit. The Portland Business Journal reported that one of the sellers of the property was Connie Watt, who owned the Village Inn restaurant that closed in May 2020 after four decades of operation.
The Portland Business Journal said In-N-Out did not respond to a request for comment on the purchase of the property in Tualatin. Last year, the restaurant chain sought approval of a drive-thru that would be nearly 4,000 square feet in size, according to the city of Tualatin. It also released renderings of what a location there could look like.
In-N-Out Burger has a restaurant along Interstate 5 in Keizer, near Salem. The other two locations in the state are in southern Oregon, in Medford and Grants Pass. The restaurant chain has looked at other sites in the Portland area, including in Hillsboro and near Beaverton.
In April, In-N-Out submitted a land-use application for a site in Hillsboro near the corner of Northwest 185th Avenue and Northeast Evergreen Parkway, north of Northeast Cornell Road, in what is now the parking lot of a Barnes & Noble bookstore which is expected to close in mid-October.
In December 2020, representatives for In-N-Out held a virtual community meeting to discuss plans for a potential Beaverton location on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, east of Highway 217.
