Developers of Plano’s $3 billion Legacy West project are shifting gears on its next building.
Previously, a boutique hotel and retail space had been announced for the vacant block at the north end of the Legacy West Urban Village at Headquarters Drive and Windrose Avenue.
Now the plan is for a combination office, retail and apartment building instead.
Developer Fehmi Karahan said: “we decided to increase the office component instead of a hotel. Building the office makes more sense.”
Karahan said construction on the six-story mixed-use building will start next week.
Designed by architect Gensler, the project will include almost 87,000 square feet of office space and more than 24,000 square feet of ground floor retail. There’s also a large parking garage.
On the west side of the building facing Communications Parkway, a five-story apartment building will include 161 units.
