Ikea taking shape in the desert


Las Vegas -- Those familiar blue composite panels are going up in Las Vegas.

Ikea announced that steel framing has progressed far enough that installation of the iconic blue panels has begun on its future Las Vegas store. Installing the blue panels is a construction milestone that ensures the 351,000-sq.-ft. store will open summer 2016, and it reflects the unique architectural design for which Ikea stores are known worldwide.

“With Ikea Las Vegas taking shape and the blue paneling now going up, we definitely are on track for a grand opening next summer,” said Lars Petersson, Ikea U.S. president.

With 131 stores around the world, Patagonia has four stores in New York City.
