Chase’s planned Legacy West campus in Plano is getting bigger
JPMorgan Chase’s new Plano office campus is getting bigger.
The financial services and banking giant is buying almost 50 acres in the Legacy West development near the southwest corner of State Highway 121.
Chase’s new regional business center will include more than 1.4 million square feet of office space in six buildings, according to plans filed with the City of Plano. The office buildings will be as tall as eight floors.
There are also three large parking garages to be built on the development site located between S.H. 121 and Headquarters Drive.
The buildings are connected by paved esplanades and landscaped areas.
And a large park area with an “amenity feature” planned for the north corner of the campus on Communications Parkway.
The campus is projected to cost almost $300 million and will open starting in 2018.
Architect HKS is designing the project.
Chase has retained seven acres of undeveloped land at the west end of its property where it can construct additional office space in the future, according to the detailed design documents.
Chase disclosed in early January that it plans to relocate almost 6,000 North Texas workers to the new Plano project.
The bank picked the $2 billion Legacy West development after looking at options along the Dallas North Tollway in Plano and Frisco.
Chase will join Liberty Mutual Insurance, Toyota and FedEx Office with large employment centers at Legacy West. Within two years more than 15,000 people will be working in the Legacy West project – making it one of the largest new job centers in the state.
All but about 20 acres of the 240-acre Legacy West project are committed for developments. (2/2/2016)
