Ikea plans the ultimate building project: a whole town8/22/2012
On Wednesday, Swedish furniture giant Ikea unveiled plans to build a district full of apartments, shops and office space in the northern German city of Hamburg. Harald Mueller, head of the firm's property subsidiary Landprop, told the local Hamburg paper they were searching for a plot of land of at least five acres (two hectares) to build on, in conjunction with the city authorities. The plan will be the second such urban development Ikea is planning, having already purchased land in London. We just want to know if the builders constructing the district will have to follow a set of confusing instructions in the wrong language. [Source]
