Swedish furniture brand IKEA has announced plans to launch its first Manhattan location in spring 2019. The forthcoming store will be located on Third Avenue between East 59th and East 60th Streets. The opening will serve as the U.S. debut of IKEA’s city-center location known as the IKEA Planning Studio. With an emphasis on product deliveries, the concept is conceived exclusively for dense urban markets where securing warehouse space is less feasible.
The arrival of the Manhattan store will coincide with a remodel of its other New York store in Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood, which is slated to wrap by the end of 2019.
