THE COLONY - Nebraska Furniture Mart (NFM) reached another milestone when it recently began stocking the 1.3 million-sf home-furnishing warehouse at the southeast corner of the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Plano Pkwy.

The $156.8 million project will also include 564,000 sf of retail space, the 1.3 million-sf warehouse and pickup area, an 800,000-sf five-story parking garage, a data center and a central utility plant.

The project is expected to be completed Dec. 1. The store is on pace to open spring 2015.

The warehouse in The Colony will support the 564,000-sf Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas showroom and will take more than five months to fill.

When completed, the new store will be fully staffed with 2,300 workers. NFM’s workforce will have more than doubled from where it was in 2011 when it announced plans for its first Texas store.

NFM is also developing Grandscape, a 433-acre, $1.5 billion mixed-use development surrounding the new store. It recently announced retail tenants including Hampton Inn & Suites, Homewood Suites, Cheddar's Casual Cafe, Hard Eight BBQ, Mi Cocina and Rock & Brews.

NFM’s store alone is project to attract about 8 million shoppers each year to Grandscape.
