Costco is looking to develop a members-only retail warehouse in Georgetown, featuring an attached tire center, a liquor sales area and an optical exam area, according to a letter of intent from the retailer to the city of Georgetown.
“In addition, a freestanding, 24-fueling-position fueling facility will be developed on the project site,” the document said.
It also said the warehouse and fuel facility would employ about 200-250 people in both full- and part-time positions.
Upon council approval of the planned unit development, the project would be built on about 34 acres of land at the northwest corner of Lakeway Drive and I-35. There are a total of 753 parking spots designed for the overall site plan.
