Legacy West

Plano’s Legacy West located at the Dallas North Tollway and Legacy Drive

I’m ashamed to say that even though I’ve lived and worked in West Plano for years, I can’t keep all the new developments in this part of town straight in my head. I’m not alone either. Now instead of idle small chat about the weather, Planoites talk about all the coming traffic to “that part of town,” while motioning generally to the west.

You probably know about Toyota, Liberty Mutual, and JP Morgan Chase Bank’s relocations that brought 4.1 million (MILLION!) square feet of new corporate real estate to the area. Then more companies like Nokia, NTT Data, and Fannie Mae followed suit, announcing new or expanded campuses in West Plano. Then I swear by 2018, I just lost count and tuned out when press release after press release announced a new regional headquarters coming to Plano. (Sorta like what people do when they hear a new sport or arena is coming to Arlington.)

There’s hope for confused Planoites and anyone else hiking up the Dallas North Tollway to see quite literally a brand new cityscape rise up from what once was prairie land. Here’s a quick review on what’s going on in west Plano and three shopping experiences you’ll only get at Legacy West.

Robbie Briggs - grand opening Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty offices in The North

There was plenty of great food, great wine, music and people, lots of people, on hand to celebrate the opening of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty’s new Plano office located in the Shops of Legacy on the north side of Legacy, in the same building as Publicis Public Relations. Everyone had fun and got home before the super hail storm that never materialized, at least not in Dallas or Plano. As you can see, neither rain nor hail ever stops a Dallas Realtor from having fun!
