Curbed‘s got the goodies on Red Hook today. It’s got a report from the Brooklyn Papers about the Scandinavian company’s embedding of its company name on the esplanade railing–so that people can find the building (uh, it’s the GIGANTIC BLUE BOX right behind you!). Also, the soon-to-opened Fairway down the street from the Ikea site will have fresh bagels! store-roasted coffee! a restaurant! store-smoked fish! an organic section! (<a href=”http://www.nydailynews.com/boroughs/story/397654p-337004c.html”NYDaily News) And the QM2 will dock at the new cruise-ship terminal in Red Hook on April 15.
And from the Curbed comments section, someone points out Ikea’s pretty nifty environmental and labor guidelines, found at Treehugger.
