The Washington Square Regional Center (WSRC) is located at the northern edge of Tigard, the southeastern edge of Beaverton, and the eastern edge of unincorporated Washington County. While centered on the Washington Square Mall, it extends nearly a mile in all directions from the mall itself.

Washington Square is one of eight regional centers designated in the Metro regional growth plan because of its concentration of jobs and stores that are accessible from around the region via Highway 217, Hall Boulevard, Scholls Ferry Road, and multiple transit lines. The WSRC is also home to a culturally diverse and growing community.

The community envisions this area becoming more equitable, accessible, and inviting over the next 20 years:

The Washington Square Regional Center of the future is a multicultural hub of activity that is accessible by multiple modes of transportation from across the region. It is easy and comfortable for people to travel by bus, commuter rail, foot, or bike to reach jobs, services, parks, schools, and local amenities. Large parking lots are redeveloped with new buildings at a variety of heights that connect to wide sidewalks and inviting public spaces. New development creates a greener urban environment that benefits people, habitat, and streams. Large and small businesses have opportunities to locate here and grow in place. These changes make the area more attractive, but existing communities of color are not priced out as the area redevelops. All are welcome and have the opportunity to call this area home.
