The building is planned to be 252,000 sf and include four model homes, 50 room settings, a supervised children’s play area and a 250-seat restaurant. The site has been designed with 1,100 parking stalls. Endeavor Group principal Chris Ellis did not return a phone call seeking comment. The store will be Ikea’s third in the state.
