SIOUX CITY | Bed Bath & Beyond is coming to Sioux City. The national retailer has signed a lease in a new retail center under construction at Sunnybrook Plaza. "As we continue to grow and open stores, we are always looking for new locations where we will be able to offer our new customers the broad assortment and outstanding customer service that is Bed Bath & Beyond," company spokeswoman Leah Drill said... "Sioux City is such a location and we are very excited to be coming there. The chain's first Sioux City store will be about 20,000 square feet and will open sometime in early 2015, Drill said. Bed Bath & Beyond is the first confirmed tenant for Sunnybrook Village , a retail development being built on a 5. 6-acre site between the Greatland Target parking lot and a Sherwin-Williams store. Rumors of Bed Bath & Beyond coming to the site have circulated in the community for months. The chain, which sells a wide variety of domestic merchandise and home furnishings, has more than 1,008 Bed Bath & Beyond stores in 50 states. The next closest outlets to Sioux City are in Sioux Falls and Omaha. Grading at the Sunnybrook Village site began last year. The first of two buildings on a site plan submitted to the city is under construction. The developer, Sunnybrook Partners LLC, is a group led by Sioux City contractor and developer Bart Connelly. Founded in 1971, Bed Bath & Beyond has few major competitors in its category since the liquidation of Linens 'n Things. Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and its subsidiaries operate more than 1,400 stores under Bed Bath & Beyond and other names. Most of the stores range in size from 15,000 to 50,000 square feet, with some exceeding 80,000 square feet, according to the company's website. The Fortune 500 firm is publicly traded under the symbol “BBBY” and included in the Standard and Poor's 500, Global 1200 Indices and the NASDAQ-100 Index. Started in 2002, Sunnybrook Plaza is a large and growing commercial and retail development at the intersection of Sunnybrook Drive and Sergeant Road, just off U. S. Highway 20. Besides Greatland Target, it's anchored by Lowe's Home Improvement... Source: siouxcityjournal.com
When Ami McKay moved to British Columbia from her native Niagara Falls 20 years ago, her dream was to paint the mountains. She took classes at the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, but then changed disciplines. Today, she’s an interior designer, specializing in residential and hospitality projects in addition to new builds. McKay collaborates on them with project manager Don Thomas, her partner in life and business. As principal of Pure Design Inc. , she has also designed a line of sustainable furniture and bedding sold across Canada through Bed, Bath & Beyond stores. Much of her ideas come from nature, with which McKay maintains a connection through her principal residence, a three-bedroom cabin in the woods some 25 minutes north of Vancouver. The mountains, which originally lured her west, are visible from the cabin’s living room. And they inspire her still. “It is heaven here,” she says. “We have our own private beach and I can see it all through the windows in this room, which I’ve designed to be very earthy to contrast with the ocean outside. The windows. “There are no curtains on purpose – this room has such wow factor. When people walk into the space, their mouths drop, because all you see is blue, the blue of the ocean. It feels like you are in a floating home and I didn’t want anything to take away from that. The view is everything in this room. The chairs. “These I designed myself. They are part of my Pure furniture line, which is 100-per-cent sustainable. I upholstered them in a linen cotton blend fabric. I love that they are white, as I like having light-looking furniture in my home. It doesn’t compete for attention with the other pieces in the room. The side table. “This is really neat. It comes from Indonesia. When the forests are clear cut [there], the villagers are left with nothing except the root in the ground, which they dig out and sell. So this table serves two purposes for me: It’s sculptural and it’s also giving back. It’s a table with a conscience. The ceiling. “It’s a cedar-beam ceiling. It’s interesting and really beautiful. I really like how the white walls pop against the high contrast of the wood. “It’s made of wire, and looks to me like an industrial fan. I have spent a lot of time looking at it. I love baskets, and I love the hand work that goes. Source: www.theglobeandmail.com
An artist's rendering of a new atrium planned for the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn. Mall officials, Mortenson Construction, Hotel Development LLC and the city of Bloomington celebrated the beginning of a $325 million expansion project at the mall with a ceremonial groundbreaking event on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. The expansion... (Image courtesy of Mall of America) The expansion will add a new Food Hall, underground valet parking and another 50 to 75 retailers, mostly aimed at upscale shoppers. It will also add a second atrium — “bigger than the one we’re standing in today,” said Kurt Hagen, senior vice president of mall owner Triple Five Worldwide, at Tuesday’s groundbreaking, which was moved indoors because of weather. The expansion also will add a 342-room luxury JW Marriott Hotel and a seven-story office building designed to attract distinctive high-profile tenants. On an even grander scale, the expansion kicks off a 10-year plan to nearly double the size of the mega-mall, eventually pushing it to the north, filling up the old Met Sports Center space, now a vast parking area. “As far as what’s to come, we have big plans — we always have,” said Paul Ghermezian, whose family corporation owns the Bloomington mega-mall. Mall of America already attracts some 42 million visitors a year, ranking it among the nation’s most popular attractions. Eventually, mall officials hope to bring 60 million visitors a year to the expanded mall, and shift the balance so that tourists outnumber locals. While the distant future — a world-class indoor waterpark, more department stores, an indoor skating rink — are still years away, the expansion launched Tuesday paves the way for those later additions, officials said. “This is another step toward that,” Hagen said. “We’ll continue to grow north. This expansion, along with futures ones, is partly financed by a $250 million tax break that Minnesota legislators and Gov. Mark Dayton approved last year. The $325 million addition kicked off Tuesday has several parts, with slightly different timetables. “The retail will open in August 2015,” Hagen said. “The hotel will be about two months after that, and the office will probably open two months after that. So it’s kind of sequenced. Obviously, retail will be first, but it’ll all. Source: www.duluthnewstribune.com
