Costco Wholesale submitted a formal commercial site plan application for a proposed location in Riverton on June 19, 2020. The application comes following months of close coordination between Costco, city officials and the property owner. The proposed location is at the northeast corner of 13200 S and Mountain View Corridor, just north of Mountain View Village.
“We are excited to see Costco submit a site plan application for a new Riverton location,” said Mayor Trent Staggs. “We have been actively working with Costco for many months and are pleased to see them moving forward. This development will benefit the citizens of Riverton for years into the future, not just for the great products and services Costco provides, but due to the sales tax revenue that will be generated.”
The Costco warehouse is proposed to be approximately 160,000 square feet in size. In addition to the warehouse, the 19.19-acre property will include a Costco gas station and more than 800 parking stalls. The application includes plans to create a right-in, right-out connection with Mountain View Corridor, allowing for enhanced access to the location beyond the primary access from Eagles Flight Road (4570 W).
The site of the planned Costco is part of an overall development on Riverton’s west side that includes a master development agreement between Riverton City and Suburban Land Reserve, the property owner. The agreement includes both commercial and residential development, with ongoing construction happening in the area on Phase 2 of Mountain View Village.
When completed, it is anticipated the Riverton Costco will attract tens of thousands of customers from Riverton, Herriman, Bluffdale, western South Jordan and other areas. Timing on construction and opening of the Costco location is not yet known. The next step in the process will be a formal review and approval of the site plan application by the Riverton City Planning Commission.
