Ikea shows off new Polaris store progress

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – With its opening still nearly a year away, Ikea is showing off its new Columbus store’s construction site.

The 354,000-square-foot store is being built on 33 acres of land once occupied by German Amphitheatre.

The company says the Columbus Ikea will feature 10,000 exclusively designed items, three model home interiors, 50 room settings, a supervised children’s play area and a 450-seat restaurant.

This is the second Ikea to be built in Ohio. The only other Ohio location is in Cincinnati.

According to NP Limited Partnership, the Ikea store is expected to anchor the new Polaris 91 development.

The extension of Gemini Parkway to Worthington Road is also still underway.

The $10 million dollar project will extend Gemini Parkway to Worthington Road and run adjacent to the store.
