The plan to build a Costco Wholesale store near Crossgates Mall has been in the works for three years. There has been a lot of resistance and red tape but now there is a major development that could get the wholesale store built.
It seems like we may never get a Costco in the Capital Region. The plans have been submitted and construction was supposed to begin but there are a lot of residents and a non-profit that have raised concerns. Just recently there was another meeting, this time in front of an appeals panel.
A recent ruling by a judge may make Costco a reality to be built near Crossgates Mall in Guilderland. Just because a judge ruled in the builder's favor, however, doesn't mean residents are going to back down without a fight. They have some strong arguments.
