Windrose Tower at Legacy West is currently open for pre-sales, but the sales center is slated to open just next month.

No one could be more excited about the new Windrose Tower at Legacy West than us here at CandysDirt.com.

Pre-sales have already launched for the luxurious 24-story high-rise, and the all-new sales center for the ground-breaking building — the only luxury condo development built north of LBJ since the Bonaventure — slated to open next month. The building will offer 85 to 95 condos ranging from 1,300 to 11,000 square feet with sleek, unparalleled finish-out.

The pre-sale campaign has been expertly spearheaded by Al Coker and Fernando Gonzalez of Al Coker & Associates. The marketing and brokerage firm is thrilled to show off vignettes of the property, so that prospective buyers can really picture themselves in the spaces. And the center is conveniently located, too, just across from the future site of Windrose Tower at Headquarters and the Tollway, 7800 N. Dallas Parkway, Suite 156.

The estimated completion date for the residences will be in the fourth quarter of 2018, but if you want to see the units before they’re built, make sure you’re the first person in the door of the sales center. Stay tuned right here to CandysDirt.com for more on Windrose Tower and the incredible, game-changing Legacy West development.

Scott Felder Homes has been trying to get its $100 million single-family project at Legacy West off the ground since October, but it took Republic Property Group‘s help to get it done. The Dallas-based developer just closed on the 12-acre property that will accommodate 127 new homes ranging from 1,900 to 3,600 square feet, complete with rooftop decks to view the nearby $2 billion mixed-use development that just attracted JPMorgan Chase, Fannie Mae, FedEx, and myriad others.

It’s the latest in a growing list of projects slated for the Plano hub, and it surely won’t be the last. In fact, Legacy West and Plano are so hot they are practically scalding. Who would have thought that, after years of chasing the tails of Frisco, McKinney, and Allen, that Plano would see such a robust rebirth?

It’s been a rumored deal for months now, but now, Plano has another reason to celebrate. JPMorgan Chase has selected an anchor corner in Legacy West to build a $300-million, 1-million-square-foot high-rise campus to house 6,000 relocated employees from around DFW.

JPMorgan Chase signed a letter of intent Thursday to build at Legacy West, Plano’s 240-acre development. Construction is slated to start later this year, Chase spokesman Greg Hassell told Steve Brown at the Dallas Morning News.

The empty lot, located near the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121, is next to the new Liberty Mutual Insurance development, a $325-million office campus under construction now.

The letter of intent ends months of searching by Chase to find a location to consolidate some North Texas workers from Farmers Branch, downtown Dallas, Lewisville, Coppell, and other locations into a corporate office complex.

“We expect the first employees to start moving in to the new campus in the second half of 2017—total move-in will last through 2018 and 2019,” Hassell told Brown. “Over time, we expect 6,000 employees to work at the new campus — roughly half of our employee population in the Metroplex. We haven’t figured out where everybody comes from yet. We have people in a number of buildings across the Metroplex.”
