Costco seeks to expand Springfield store with gas station

Costco plans to add a new fueling station to its Springfield location (via Google Maps)

Costco is fueling up to expand its Springfield location with a new 12-pump gas station.

In a proposal submitted to Fairfax County on Dec. 15, Costco Whole Corp. says it wants to demolish a vacant, two-story office building next to its warehouse at 7373 Boston Blvd and replace it with the fueling station, which would be open for Costco members only.

To move forward with the plan, Costco would consolidate two parcels of land, adding roughly 9,300 square feet of usable space to its property.

β€œThe consolidation of Parcel 24 and Parcel C would allow the Applicant to redevelop the currently vacant office building with a state-of-the-art members-only vehicle fueling station and integrate all 17.61 acres into the Costco Wholesale retail experience with the same departments and features Costco includes in any new developments and which exist in all of their other locations in Fairfax County,” the application said.

The application emphasizes that the changes, if approved, would actually reduce the overall density of the site.

Access to Costco — which is currently provided at two points on Boston Blvd. — would not be impacted by the proposal.

At the western entrance to the property, an existing entry to the office building would be repurposed as an entry point, “seamlessly integrating it into the consolidated Costco retail center.”

“This consolidation ensures continuity in site accessible while enhancing overall operational efficiency,” the application said.

The fueling station would have 24 fueling positions and a 8,100-square-foot fuel canopy.

The proposal is under review but hasn’t been officially accepted by county planners yet. Costco is also seeking to expand its heavily used retail warehouse at 4725 West Ox Road in the Fairfax area.
