March 16, 2010 -- Ikea today announced that contractors have been hired and a site-work permit is pending for its future Denver-area store. A fall 2011 grand opening is planned for the 415,000-sq.-ft. store, which will be built on 13.5 acres along the western side of Interstate 25 in the Park Meadows area of Centennial, Colorado.
The store will be the first Ikea location in the U.S. to incorporate a geothermal component as part of the heating and cooling system -- heat will be pumped either from or into the ground, depending on weather conditions.
Centennial-based Saunders Construction has been retained as the construction management firm.
“With our land purchased, team selected and site-work permit pending, we now can schedule Ikea Centennial to open fall 2011,” said Doug Greenholz, Ikea real estate director. “Construction crews soon will begin clearing and grading the site, and we look forward to breaking ground officially in a couple of months.”
There are currently more than 300 Ikea stores in 38 countries, including 37 in the U.S.
