Here’s What Burbank Ikea Is Going to Be Replaced With

July 22, 2016 by Virginia Isaad

A few months ago it was announced that the Burbank Town Center is getting a makeover and now we’ve got some brand new renderings of the revamp.

Plans include an outdoor ice rink, a farmer’s market, and the entryway on Magnolia and San Fernando Blvd. will be redesigned to be more walker-friendly and more of an open space, according to the LA Times.

We previously reported on the  planned construction of 765 multi-family units set to take over the space where the Ikea now stands and 70 for-sale units on N. San Fernando Boulevard.

Some of the upgrades to the residential/ retail complex include outdoor dining options,  an open-air plaza, 40,000 square feet of new space for retail, and open space for a farmers market.

The project is part of the “I Heart Burbank” campaign, with developers aiming to complete the project by 2020 with the renovations to the Burbank Town Center costing about $60 million.

A new Ikea, which is slated to be about twice the size of the current Ikea, is in the process of being erected about one mile from the original Burbank location on a 22-acre lot.

It’s set to open in Spring of 2017,  according to CurbedLA.
