Fort Worth is getting an IKEA.

The Swedish furniture store retailer announced today it has submitted a proposal to the City of Fort Worth for a 289,000-square foot store sitting on 27 acres at the southwest corner of Interstate 35W and N. Tarrant Parkway. Pending approvals, construction could begin in spring 2018 with an opening in the summer of 2019. Along with the 500 construction jobs, the store would add about 250 IKEA employees.

“We are thrilled with our success in North Texas since opening our first store 11 years ago, so we are excited to propose a Fort Worth store to grow our Dallas-area reach,” said Lars Petersson, IKEA U.S. president in a news release. “This proposed Fort Worth store would complement our Dallas-area presence in Frisco and soon in Grand Prairie by bringing the unique family-friendly shopping experience even closer to customers in the western part of the Metroplex.”

There are currently more than 390 IKEA stores in 48 countries, including 43 in the U.S. In Texas, there are six including a location in Grand Prairie set to open later this year. A San Antonio-area store is set to open in 2019. IKEA has been included in rankings of “Best Companies to Work For” several times. The company is also known for its low carbon footprint. In the company’s announcement, it said it will “evaluate potential on-site power generation to complement its current U.S. renewable energy presence at nearly 90 percent of its U.S. locations.”

Since its 1943 founding in Sweden, IKEA has offered home furnishings of good design and function at affordable prices.
