By the late 1990s, MALL 205 was in a downward spiral. It was acquired by Gresham, Oregon-based Center Oak Properties in the year 2000. Over the next 2 years, they performed a retail resuscitation. The mall was renovated inside and out and new stores were brought in. These included Bed, Bath & Beyond, 24 Hour Fitness and Famous Footwear.
