As master developer Fehmi Karahan prepares to welcome corporate clientele to Legacy West, he’s also bringing an assortment of retailers and restaurants to compliment the office space.

The $3.2 billion, 225-acre Legacy West in Plano is already home to furniture store West Elm and North Texas restaurant newcomer Shake Shack. But far more is in store.

In May, retailers set to join the development include:


  • Bonobos
  • Coach
  • Fabletics
  • Johnny Was
  • Peter Millar
  • Pockets Menswear


  • Venetian Nail Spa


  • Tesla

Two eateries, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and True Food Kitchen, are also set to open in May.

In January 2015, Mark Mednansky, formerly CEO of Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group, said the company decided to build a steak house in Legacy West due to its proximity to office space, retailers and other restaurants.

“There are so many developers building on both sides of the tollway and we looked at them all,” he added. “Legacy West stood out for us. The development is first class, big and bold, and Del Frisco’s is about being big and bold.”

In June, Legacy West will also welcome apparel and accessories retailers Tumi, Filson and SuitSupply and furniture company Frontgate.

And restaurants Mesero, North Italian, Sprinkles and Earls Kitchen + Bar will join the lineup.

“The experience that our environment offers is second to none, anywhere in Texas. We have the best dining choices for all budgets and tastes, and a broad selection of marquis retailers,” Karahan said in a prepared statement. “Blending these shopping and dining venues with our residential and office tenants makes Legacy West the premier ‘live/work/eat/play/shop’ destination in Texas.”

He added that additional retailers and restaurants will open throughout the summer. Legacy Hall, a 55,000-square-foot food hall, is expected to launch later this year.
