The building's steel structure has now been erected. The store is located on a 17-acre site in the Airport Plaza industrial park near the corner of State and Ellsworth and behind the Tyner's Furniture store.
A sign at the site announces the store will officially open in summer 2012.
The site is fenced off and bustling with construction crews and equipment working on the project. The contractor is Seattle-based Jackson Dean Construction. The project manager could not be reached for comment.
Costco is building a 148,000-square-foot store with 720 parking spaces and a gasoline station. Final plans for the project received approval from the Pittsfield Township Planning Commission in early August.
Eight office buildings were demolished for the new warehouse store and all of the tenants relocated. Local developer Jake Haas sold the land to Costco Wholesale Corp. in September for $7.34 million, according to township documents.
