That humongous Ikea going up on the Red Hook waterfront is rapidly acquiring its blue outer skin. Last time we had looked, there were only a couple of panels up on the side of the big box on the site of the former Todd Shipyard. Was it only last spring that the old buildings were coming down? The store is supposed to open next spring and, last we heard, it will be joined by some big box friends like Bed, Bath & Beyond. The Beard Street side of the store, which is the one most people will see, should be blue in a matter of weeks.
