Plano, Texas/85 Acres
Legacy Central is an expansive 85-acre property comprising five former Texas Instruments campus buildings and substantial undeveloped land area. Prior to acquiring the campus, Regent Properties, a California developer, engaged Dallas-based BOKA Powell Architects to thoroughly examine the feasibility of transforming the existing office buildings and amenities, as well as the available acreage into a dynamic mixed-use campus. Together, BOKA Powell and Regent developed a concept to open up the formerly secure buildings, adding glass and creating portals that organize the campus around a central park to facilitate users’ understanding of circulation throughout. Building entrances and façades were also redirected towards the highway for visibility of tenants and users. The redevelopment includes the LC Linc conference center, two parking structures, and a 400-seat food hall-style restaurant pavilion that includes four food stands, an outdoor patio covered by adjustable louvers, and additional dining space. A completely renovated fitness facility offers a full-length basketball court, climbing wall, strength training and cardio rooms, yoga studio, bocce ball courts, and a lap swimming pool. Bike sharing stations provide access for users to move throughout the campus along a one-mile jogging and biking trail. Trammell Crow Residential has developed a multi-phase multi-family development to the south side of the property. High-profile tenants include a wide range of technology tenants, including Samsung Telecommunications, Peloton Bicycles, Ribbon, Tata Consulting, Roland Technology, The 2Q, and Cheil Worldwide. Co-working outlet Spaces has also leased a significant portion of LC3. Planning includes additional mixed-use elements, including multi-family housing, hotel, additional office buildings, structured parking, and further activation of existing green spaces between the buildings.
