Not just Toyota and Liberty Mutual Insurance are moving to the new Legacy West development in Plano.
Some of the country’s top restaurant operators are heading to the $2 billion Collin County development, too.
Karahan Cos. – which also developed the successful Shops at Legacy retail center in West Plano – has already signed leases with a more than a half dozen big name restaurants for Legacy West.
And the developer has other eatery deals in the works.
Legacy West will also feature a one-of-a-kind food hall building with a market area, specialty food vendors and room for live entertainment, said developer Fehmi Karahan.
“We’ve been so pleased with the response we are getting to the retail portion of the development,” Karahan said. “This is going to be a step up from what we did at the Shops at Legacy.”
Construction started earlier this year on the $400 million Legacy West urban village, and the first building will open next summer.
The project includes 280,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, a 300-room, $82 million Renaissance Hotel, hundreds of apartments and offices being built along the west side of the Dallas North Tollway at Legacy Drive.
