A Costco retail warehouse is on track to open in East Lansing sometime next fall.  The East Lansing Planning Commission approved site plans on Wednesday for the $30 million, 157,000 square foot facility to be built at 5800 Park Lake Road between Saginaw Street and Haslett Road.

The members only warehouse would include a tire center and free standing gas station with 24 spots to fuel up along with a parking lot that could accommodate 750 vehicles.  It would employ up to 150 people.

The developer still needs permits from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Department of Transportation, Ingham Road Commission and Ingham County Drain Commissioner before construction can begin.  Here's the latest from the Lansing State Journal.
