The Ridge Shopping Center and Costco

FAQ

About the Projects

The City received two applications in fall 2015 from Pappas Gateway, L.P. and Costco Wholesale requesting approval of various Planning permits (referred to as entitlements). If approved, the two interrelated projects would develop the approximate 40 acre property located at the southeastern corner of Bruceville Road and Elk Grove Boulevard.

The designated approving authority for The Ridge is the Planning Commission and the designated approving authority for Costco Wholesale is the City Council.

Project Site Map

The Ridge Shopping Center:

The Ridge Shopping Center was approved by the Planning Commission on May 5, 2016. The Ridge Shopping Center encompasses 24 acres of undeveloped property and proposes to develop up to 226,000 square feet of commercial space. Large Major Tenant spaces are planned in the southwestern portion of the Project site, facing Elk Grove Boulevard. The multi-tenant retail building for the three Junior Major tenants is centrally located, providing a visual barrier of the proposed Costco Fueling Center from Bruceville Road. The site plan also includes fourteen individual pad buildings, of which six buildings may include drive-through facilities. The eight remaining pad buildings will house a variety of commercial tenants. Parking has been provided above the minimum Code standards in order to accommodate the greatest flexibility in a given future tenant mix.

Costco has been designed to effectively be a part of The Ridge Shopping Center with vehicle and pedestrian cross access provided on all sides of the building.

Project Context:

The Ridge and Costco are proposed on property identified in the City’s General Plan (the long-range master plan for the City) and the Laguna Ridge Specific Plan for commercial-retail development.  The property has been zoned “Shopping Center (SC)” Commercial.  As such, the City’s review at this stage is on the design (e.g., architecture, landscaping, lighting, amenities) and operation (e.g., screening from adjacent retail, limitation of noise, truck traffic routing) of the proposed shopping center. 

PROJECT STATUS:

The Ridge Shopping Center was approved by the Planning Commission on May 5, 2016. At the same meeting, the Planning Commission recommended the Costco Wholesale Project for City Council approval. 

The Project was approved by the City Council on July 13, 2016, and on April 12, 2017 the City Council approved an economic incentive payment agreement relating to the Costco store. 

The Project is in the final stages of preparation with the owners and builders. Development Services has approved the building and infrastructure plans and is ready to issue construction permits. The City anticipates construction will begin in the late winter with a likely opening date of summer 2018
