Pacific Natural Foods plans to lease 302,765 square feet at a former Nike distribution center in Wilsonville, the largest Portland-area lease for an existing building in 10 years.

Last year, the site was expected to become a SoloPower manufacturing plant, where 170 workers would produce thin-film solar panels. The $340 million project was tied to an $11 million incentive package from the city.
