The huge Ikea rising in Red Hook might get a big-box neighbor. The Brooklyn Eagle reports that a 176,429-square-foot 'raw piece of land' at 640 Columbia Street is on the market. The broker shopping the space states that it 'is ideal for a “wholesale/retail, Lowes-type of place. It’s perfectly situated. Anyone going to IKEA will have to pass by this property.' Now, there area's not exactly wanting for a Lowe's (one's located relatively close to Red Hook on Second Avenue and 10th Street), but there aren't any Bed Bath & Beyonds or Targets anywhere nearby. Time to rectify that situation!
