Where is the place to be in North Texas these days? Well, if you are looking for the right suburb for your work and family life balance, then Frisco is probably it!
More and more large companies have set their sights on Plano’s Legacy West development as one of the top potential sites for company expansion or relocations. This is great news for families looking to shorten their commute and live in a fabulous, upscale family-oriented community.
If you are curious just who is seeking to move into these parts here are just a few notables: Liberty Mutual Insurance, based in Boston, has been seeking a lease or purchase of upwards of a million-square-feet space to house anywhere from 4,000-5,000 employees.
As large companies circle North Texas in search of new corporate homes or regional hubs, Plano’s Legacy West development is once again surfacing as a potential site.
The latest deal being discussed: Boston-based Liberty Mutual Insurance plans to lease, or own, a nearly million-square-foot service center in a campus-like setting in a project that could bring 4,000 to 5,000 jobs to West Plano. This is still speculative until an official announcement is made from Liberty Mutual itself, however, it is pretty exciting, nonetheless.
Legacy West is the same mixed-use project area on the southwest corner of Highway 121 and the Dallas North Toll road where Toyota Motor Corporate recently began construction of its North American headquarters, expected to be complete later this year. FedEx also boasts a new headquarters site here; filling approximately 265,000 square feet of space.
“There’s certainly some big projects out there that are looking at Frisco,” said Jim Gandy, president of the Frisco Economic Development Corp. “There’s more than one deal roaming in that ballpark and actively looking at this area.”
As you probably already suspected, Frisco just keeps getting better and better!
