Apple Retail in Portland

Heard a rumor from a friend at Washington County that development should start soon on some new Lifestyle mall space -- nice shopping/walking area with top tier restaurants and fountains and things -- and the first company to sign the lease?

Apple Retail.

That's right, it appears an Apple Retail store is coming to Portland. Not only that, it's coming to the west side! Apparently the space is somewhere in the I-5/217 triangle (for those who know Portland at all), which is a scoot from home and work.

This is great news, given my last conversation with the nice folks at Apple Corporate Marketing was something like "we're waiting for a nice retailer who has great space to die."
