About the Projects

The City received two applications in fall 2015 from Pappas Gateway, L.P. and Costco Wholesale requesting approval of various Planning permits (referred to as entitlements). If approved, the two interrelated projects would develop the approximate 40 acre property located at the southeastern corner of Bruceville Road and Elk Grove Boulevard.

The designated approving authority for The Ridge is the Planning Commission and the designated approving authority for Costco Wholesale is the City Council.

The Ridge Shopping Center:

The Ridge Shopping Center was approved by the Planning Commission on May 5, 2016. The Ridge Shopping Center encompasses 24 acres of undeveloped property and proposes to develop up to 226,000 square feet of commercial space. Large Major Tenant spaces are planned in the southwestern portion of the Project site, facing Elk Grove Boulevard. The multi-tenant retail building for the three Junior Major tenants is centrally located, providing a visual barrier of the proposed Costco Fueling Center from Bruceville Road. The site plan also includes fourteen individual pad buildings, of which six buildings may include drive-through facilities. The eight remaining pad buildings will house a variety of commercial tenants. Parking has been provided above the minimum Code standards in order to accommodate the greatest flexibility in a given future tenant mix.
