Only about 20 months have passed since developers announced plans for the $2 billion Legacy West project in Plano.
Often when these mega real estate deals are unveiled, it’s years and years before there’s much to show for the plans.
But less than two years after developers bought 250 acres on Legacy Drive at the Dallas North Tollway for the project, more than a billion dollars of construction is already underway.

And construction is underway on the Legacy West urban village, a 35-acre complex along the west side of the tollway that includes 784 luxury apartments, 280,000 square feet of retail, 260,000 square feet of office space and a 300-room Renaissance Hotel.
Gaedeke Group LLC is also building its One Legacy West office tower – a 14-story 327,856-square foot building – at Legacy Drive and State Highway 121.
Construction will start next year on an oval shaped apartment tower in Legacy West. It’s next to office towers being built for LIberty Mutual Insurance. (Karahan Cos.)
Starting construction next year will be a 30-story condominium tower and a 30-story apartment high-rise next door to Liberty Mutual’s two 19-story office towers.
“This is just unbelievable what’s being built,” said developer Fehmi Karahan, one of the partners in Legacy West with Columbus Realty, KDC and J.C. Penney. “In two years when you look at what we’ve built you’ll say, wow!”
Actually you don’t have to wait that long.
Karahan has had an architectural rendering that shows all of the Legacy West development and it will look upon completion.

"Trenton was awesome. He helped us to sell our home above asking price, within the first day that it went active. He also helped us to find our dream home AND negotiate a great price (well below asking price). He also has a great team of lenders that he put us in contact with who helped the process be seamless! I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
