New twin tower project going up in Plano's booming Legacy development

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/rea ... evelopment

Developer Heady Investments has broken ground on the first phase of its 3-building Headquarters II project at the Dallas North Tollway and Headquarters Drive.

The 5-acre development is right across the tollway from Liberty Mutual Insurance's huge regional campus and will include two 14-story office towers, parking garages and a high-rise hotel.

North Texas is really setting the standard for Sunbelt population cities. Fort Worth seems like it's finally getting on the train, activating the pre-air conditioning downtown setting; Dallas has certainly realized a return to the ways of higher population density, and that downtown has a solid foundation, is building an environment for greater and greater population within a fixed area.

Plano, on the other hand, is breaking new ground. No coincidence that there's an apparent culture struggle as the armada of low density single family home neighborhoods that put Plano on the Corporate America map with EDS, JCPenny, Dr Pepper, Fritos, etc is disgruntled that the next phase of corporate campus building requires thorough and hefty infusion of urban into the suburb landscape.

Plano needs another 200,000 people living in townhomes, apartments and mid & highrise dwellings. The trick is finding a place to put all these people. It's Great.

If somebody in Plano suggested that they need 200,000 more people living in apartments and other dense residential living situations I am fairly sure people living there would come unhinged. Although it would be fun to watch.

Yeah, the idea of Plano adding another 200,000 people in townhomes, apartments and mid & high-rise dwellings is pretty hilarious.

I think it is less about finding places for 200.000 people to live, rather, how to move an additional 200.000 people on a daily basis.

It seems to me that we'll just see a further explosion of residential development all the way up the Tollway to 380. It's already in progress with developments like The Star, Frisco Station, The Gate, there are apartments going up near Toyota Stadium. Add to that the rapid growth of towns like Prosper, Little Elm and the like.

I think the good folks living in Plano and administering the municipality will realize the need to pair, bundle and contain the massive employment 'districts' with an equal residential component, otherwise the result will be like downtown Dallas in the decades leading up to the turn of the century.

A proposed 10-story, 250-room hotel is being eyed for a spot in front of the JCPenney headquarters complex. The brand has not been finalized but will be run by a Tokyo-based hotel management company. Legacy West already has a Renaissance Hotel plus an upcoming Autograph Collection (Marriott) hotel.

^^ That's definitely super old! I mean we all know now that Restoration Hardware opted to build down at Willow Bend Mall. Even where Del Frisco's is they have it listed as "Steak House". I mean it turned out to be pretty close though. Obviously a number of those proposed tenants backed out. I do know for a fact that this was supposed to be the location of the 3rd ever Travis Mathew store. I had a friend that worked for the company in Huntington Beach. They pulled out long ago and instead opted to open a store in Scottsdale.

Heard from a friend that Chase is already bursting at the seams and are planning on adding 2-12 story towers to their campus.

So it's finally been confirmed, but Travis Mathew is opening a store in Plano. This will be the 8th Travis Mathew store in the country and the 1st in Texas (another location opening in Austin towards the end of the year). However, it will not actually be at Legacy West which is surprising. Had a really good conversation with one of the store managers in California about their selection process and some of the other areas they looked at in DFW. Should actually be open in 4 - 6 weeks. Cool stores and a great brand! https://www.travismathew.com/retail
