Honestly most of the new IKEAs are around the same size, ~300,000 or so square feet. Calgary and Edmonton's recently-built IKEAs were said to be the biggest in Canada at the time, but were more or less the same square footage as other recent Canadian stores such as Burlington. Winnipeg's will probably be slightly larger than these. In Ottawa's case, their current IKEA in West Ottawa is a fraction the size of others in Canada so that city is badly in need of a new store.
Re: Crossiron, the nastiness apparently knows no bounds...last I saw they were installing pink and blue stucco squares on the exterior. Good retail mix though!
