Legacy West in Plano: First Look

Developers of the $3 billion tower that will be constructed in Plano finally provided their first look according to a Dallas Morning News article from October 5 which observes,

“Developers are providing a first look at the next high-rise planned in Plano’s $3 billion Legacy West development.

The 24-story office tower will be built near the southwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121 and will house the headquarters for Dallas tax services firm Ryan LLC.

Construction is set to start on the 400,000-square-foot building in the first quarter of 2022. Architect Gensler designed the tower, which will open in early 2024.”

Despite the planned building still in its first phase of construction, it was revealed that multiple clients have already acquired leases for it according to a Dallas Innovates article from October 11. They say, 

“The tower is already 50 percent pre-leased; JLL will lease the tower’s remaining 200,000 square feet.  

“As the return to the office continues to evolve month to month, this space will allow future tenants the ability to live, work and play seamlessly in a true mixed-use environment,” said Ahnie Sheehy, vice president of leasing, JLL, in a statement.

Further in the same article, it was also stated that Ryan Companies are primarily aiming for a brand new elevated experience for the entire project.

“We create places for people to thrive. It’s about the value it brings to the people who use the spaces,” said Paul Rowsey, VP of real estate development at Ryan Companies, in the statement. “Legacy West is already a booming retail and dining destination for the City of Plano and surrounding area. A Class AA office building will complement the existing amenities and offer future tenants an elevated experience.”

While the tower is indeed a shocking grand and elegant high-rise building, it is only an addition to the Legacy West Project which included different buildings, houses, hotels, condominiums and retail spaces inside a 250-acre.
