I’d heard about this a few months ago but now it’s looking mighty real – the Newsplex reports that Costco may be going into Stonefield.
The ARB must approve a final site plan and architecture before construction can begin. The Stonefield developer said he hopes to begin construction by early 2014.
Charlottesville folks may recall that Costco was thought to be going into the yet-to-come 5th Street shopping center with the Wegmans grocery store. Maybe a Home Depot will come to that location after all.
Costco is expected to open a store and gas station in the second phase of the Stonefield development.
Another question – Costcos are typically massive; what else, if anything, will be able to fit into the next phase of Stonefield?
Note to buyers: do as much research as possible on adjacent parcels and areas â€¦ these things will affect your quality of life and resale.I’m sure traffic at Hydraulic/29 will only be better once Costco opens.
