IKEA Secures Contractors for Memphis Store Opening Fall 2016 as First IKEA Store in Tennessee

IKEA announced contractors now are hired for building its future Memphis store. Pending remaining permits, this progress allows the project to continue on track for site work to commence, with a groundbreaking next month and a store opening in Fall 2016, increasing the Swedish retailer’s presence in the Southeastern United States. IKEA has chosen Linkous Construction Company to serve as Construction Manager for IKEA Memphis site work and store development project. Linkous has built nearly 40 million square feet of commercial, industrial and institutional projects in the past three decades. Other Memphis firms involved with this project are: real estate brokerage CBRE, site selection support; Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz as well as Burch Porter & Johnson for local land use counsel; Kimley-Horn & Associates, traffic consultant; Pangean CMD Associates, geotechnical and environmental services; and Brophy-Heineke & Associates also for environmental services. Atlanta-based GreenbergFarrow provided civil engineering services and is the project architect. IKEA Memphis will feature nearly 10,000 exclusively designed items, 50 inspirational room-settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area, and a 350-seat restaurant serving Swedish specialties such as meatballs with lingonberries and salmon plates, as well as American dishes. Other family-friendly features include a ‘Children’s IKEA’ area in the Showroom, baby care rooms, play areas throughout the store, and preferred parking. In addition to the more than 500 jobs that are expected to be created during the construction phase, approximately 225 coworkers will join the IKEA family when the new store opens. IKEA Memphis also will provide significant annual property and sales tax revenue for local governments and schools. Located in the Wolfchase corridor, 15 miles east of downtown Memphis, the 271,000-square-foot future IKEA store and nearly 1,000 parking spaces will be built on 35 acres along the southwestern side of Interstate-40 near the Germantown Parkway exit. Store plans reflect the same unique architectural design for which IKEA stores are known worldwide. IKEA also is evaluating potential on-site power generation to complement its current renewable energy presence at nearly 90% of its U.S. locations.

Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz PC Sues over $70 Million Loss for Alabama Casino Project

A company involved in the Country Crossing casino project in south Alabama has filed a $70 million lawsuit against Baker Donelson Bearman Caldwell & Berkowitz PC. Resorts Development Group II claims Baker Donelson committed legal malpractice and a breach of fiduciary duty when it advised the company that electronic bingo could be played legally in Houston County. Country Crossing was shut down voluntarily in 2010 on advice from Baker Donelson's Will Somerville to avoid a raid by a new state anti-gambling task force, the suit claims. The lawsuit claims the facility then reopened in 2011 as Center Stage Alabama with different bingo machines based on the firm's advice, but operations ceased after the machines were confiscated by the state in July 2012. In the lawsuit, RDG II claims it was left with no significant source of revenue and more than $70 million in debt.
