One of the country’s largest investment firms has landed at the $3 billion Legacy West development.
Fidelity Investments will more than double the size of its Plano office with a move to the Legacy West Urban Village on Dallas North Tollway.
“Fidelity currently has a branch office near the Willow Bend Mall that is about 6,000 square feet,” said Legacy West developer Fehmi Karahan. “They are moving their investment office to Legacy West and 16,000 square feet.
“They have about 10,000 square feet of first-floor space at the corner of the tollway and Legacy Drive, and 6,000 square feet of the second floor. We are excited to have them.”
Fidelity plans to open its new Legacy West office in January, he said.
“We have the first office tenants moving in as early as next week,” Karahan said.
Toyota Connected Inc., a new high-tech company set up by car giant Toyota, has also rented about 20,000 square feet of offices in the Legacy West Urban Village. Hotel firm Marriott has leased 10,000 square feet of office space.
More than 300,000 square feet of office space is located on top of shops and restaurants in the $400 million mixed-use development at the northwest corner of the tollway and Legacy Drive.
The project includes over 300,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
“We are working real hard to finish our buildings,” Karahan said. “The restaurants and retail will open starting in March and April.”
Retail tenants in the center include Barnes & Noble, Tommy Bahama, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Shake Shack, Taverna, True Food Kitchen and Planet Blue.
The first renters have already moved into some of the more than 1,000 apartments being built at Legacy West.
The 300-room Renaissance Hotel will open next spring.
Toyota, Liberty Mutual Insurance, JP Morgan Chase and Fed Ex office will have over 15,000 people working in the 250-acre development by 2018.
