Those opposing the proposed Walmart in the Empire Center were no doubt relieved - and proponents dismayed - when a judge ruled this week that Burbank must rescind the project's building permits.

Swedish furniture giant IKEA will face its final hurdle next week in its quest to build its largest store in the country, with the Burbank City Council set to consider the project on Tuesday. The retailer has the Burbank Planning Board on its side, which in January recommended the council green light the project, though some residents have voiced concerns about parking, traffic congestion and pedestrian safety.
