The wholesale grocer won approval from the City of Meridian for a new location on Chinden Blvd. at Ten Mile Rd. Just about a year ago, a judge threw out a challenge from neighbors over the project.

Now, the Seattle-area retailer asked the City of Meridian to issue building permits for the main warehouse building and a fuel center.

Floorplans show the layout for the store will match what you’d expect from the Costco stores in Boise and Nampa, with slight variations. (For instance, the location of the optical and pharmacy departments varies from the Boise store.)

The fuel center will sit on the corner of Chinden and Ten Mile and feature 15 double-sided fuel islands.

Several pad sites for future possible tenants also ring the outside of the site on Chinden and Ten Mile.

A site plan submitted to the City of Meridian also shows a potential future apartment complex. That portion of the project has not been submitted for approval and is marked “not finalized” on the plan.

As BoiseDev reported earlier this month, Costco will pay to widen Chinden Blvd. in the area near the site, bringing it to five lanes.  Costco will get a rebate on their upfront payment using funds from the State of Idaho’s Sales Tax Anticipation Revenue program. That program allows a developer to pay for infrastructure improvements in advance, then directs a portion of sales tax revenue from the project back to the developer in the form of a rebate.

Costco values the main building permit at $13.95 million.

Meridian city planners began a review of the building permits for Costco, but they have not yet been issued. No estimated opening date announced for the location.
