A pair of Costco warehouses are in the works in Central Florida as the region’s population growth continues to draw new retailers.
Seattle-based Costco Wholesale Corp. (Nasdaq: COST) is under construction on a new 156,000-square-foot warehouse southeast of Pineda Boulevard and Lake Andrew Drive in Brevard County’s Viera community, according to Construction Journal.
