The City of Elk Grove announced today that Costco has pulled permits to build their Elk Grove location near the corner of Elk Grove Blvd and Bruceville. Construction will start in January with the store opening in early summer
This morning, Costco Wholesale Corporation (Costco) pulled building permits for its approximately 150,000 SF project in Elk Grove. The Costco project will also include a 24-pump fueling facility with capacity for future expansion to 30 pumps; a parking lot with 751 parking stalls; and vehicular access points off of Elk Grove Boulevard and Civic Center Drive. Construction is planned to begin in mid to late January 2018, and is anticipated to be completed in early summer 2018, weather permitting.
This project will create an estimated 100 full-time and 100 part-time retail jobs with average hourly wages of approximately $22 plus benefits. Within the first 25 years, the Costco project will generate an estimated $27 million of sales tax revenue to the City. The project will also generate additional revenue for the City in the form of increased property and utility taxes.
