THE COLONY - Nebraska Furniture Mart Inc. (NFM) is in the midst of constructing a 1.9 million-sf facility at the southeast corner of the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Plano Pkwy.

NFM is currently getting its distribution center railing installed to make room for the thousands of pieces of furniture, electronics, computers, flooring and other home-centric products. The electrical wiring is being distributed throughout the 560,000-sf showroom, which is expected to help generate more than $600 million in revenue each year.

Those preparations will turn the facility into an anchor for a much larger $1.5 billion, 433-acre mixed-use development called Grandscape, which the 77-year-old Nebraska-based company has been marketing for the past year.

The 100-acre distribution center and showroom includes a parking garage with 4,900 parking spaces. NFM plans to employ about 2,000 people, with about 400 employees transferring from existing stores.

The distribution center is expected to begin getting product by fall 2014, with the showroom opening to customers by spring 2015.
