Created by visionary Ross Perot, the Legacy business park is a master-planned business, retail and residential community in northwest Plano. Legacy has already attracted nearly 15 million square feet of corporate and regional headquarters and provides a distinctive address to many top corporate names including HP Enterprise Services (formerly EDS), JCPenney, Frito-Lay, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Rent-A-Center, Bank of America Home Loans, Ericsson, Capital One Auto Finance, McAfee, PepsiCo, Intuit, CROSSMARK, Tyler Technologies, MedAssets, Pizza Hut/Yum! Restaurants International and many others. Nearly 60,000 people live and work in the park.
The park is located in Dallas’ prestigious “Platinum Corridor,” and is bounded by the Dallas North Tollway, Sam Rayburn Tollway (State Highway 121), Preston Road and Spring Creek Parkway. It is within 30 minutes of downtown Dallas, DFW International and Love Field airports. Legacy’s infrastructure is world-class with underground, concrete-encased power from dual feeds and abundant fiber from multiple providers.
Plano's Legacy Town Center is a nationally recognized urban town center in the heart of the park. There you can find a wide variety of shops, restaurants, town homes, apartments, and a full-service hotel all in a walkable, community setting. SMU-in-Plano is a branch of Southern Methodist University which offers graduate and professional programs.
