APEX — Plans for a 35-acre shopping center that would include a Costco store are moving forward.
The Apex Planning Board voted unanimously on Tuesday to recommend approval to rezone land off of Laura Duncan Road and U.S. 64 for the commercial development.
The Town Council is expected to vote on the rezoning from residential agriculture to commercial use Nov. 19.
If approved, the development known as Nichols Plaza would include up to 300,000 square feet of retail, restaurants and other commercial uses. The plaza would house the first Costco in western Wake County.
Costco has two other stores in the Triangle, in Raleigh and Durham.
