No IKEA for Somerville

Well, it’s official. Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone announced last week that IKEA has decided not to build in Assembly Square, and will be selling its land there. Looks like we’ll still have to schlep down to Stoughton for our Billy bookshelves and Swedish meatballs.

Always the optimist, Curtatone said, “…frankly, I think we’re going to end up with something better.” And I’m betting he’s right!
