Planning, Development and Heritage Committee Chairperson Cr David Morrison said work could now officially begin at the Ashburn Road site to build the retail warehouse, which will be the equivalent in size to two football fields.
Cr Morrison said the US company had set an opening date for between September and December.
Costco first announced plans to open its second Queensland warehouse in Ipswich to much fanfare in September 2017, and has since been working on gaining relevant approvals and preparing the site for construction.
Division 4 Councillor Kylie Stoneman said Costco would be a huge boost to the area as the premises would employ 330 full-time and part-time staff, open seven days a week with extended trading hours, provide 823 on-site car parking spaces, and discount petrol at its service station.
