The ripple effect of Toyota’s new $350 million campus has about 30 companies, including the carmakers’ vendors and suppliers, meeting with North Texas economic development groups. These businesses also are pondering relocating to the region, real estate sources say. The Dallas Regional Chamber, however, wouldn’t say which companies are eyeing North Texas.
Another report in Dallas Business Journal in Feb 2015 shows that, in addition to the big interest in real estate spurred by Toyota and Nebraska Furniture Market in the SRT 121 Tollway/Dallas North Tollway and Hwy 380 corridors, the Shops at Legacy/Legacy Business Center area nearby is also drawing heavy interests:
A high-profile tract of land in West Plano’s Legacy Business Park has landed on the market, which could have real estate developers and investors clamoring to buy the developable site adjacent to former regional offices of Encana Oil & Gas.
JLL has listed a nearly four-acre tract of land, with about 196 feet of frontage on Legacy Circle in West Plano near the Dallas North Tollway, which sits within walking distance of the Shops of Legacy. Real estate sources say the tract could garner an estimated $4 million to $6 million.
