Considered to be the Gateway to the Columbia Gorge, Troutdale is the Portland Metro’s most northeastern city before the majestic beauty of the Columbia River Gorge takes over. A quaint, hillside town, it overlooks the Columbia River and overlays the jagged turns and twists of the Sandy River. As a town with yesteryear charm, it also has great access to the Sandy River and the only outlet mall in the Portland Metro. In addition, Troutdale is home to McMenamin’s Edgefield, a sprawling property that includes a historic hotel, restaurants, spa, brewery, wine cellar, live music and two par-3 golf courses.
In recent years Troutdale began attracting bigger companies to its convenient location. For example, Amazon’s largest PDX Metro facility opened in Troutdale in 2018. Above all, the city’s convenient location overlaying the freeway and proximity to the airport make it ideal for expansion.
