Hear how our honorable Mayor spends his time at Legacy West when he gets to visit and actually gets to shop, eat and visit this incredible development that he has seen from its infancy to its fruition.
The interview is lighthearted and fun when you think of the incredible accomplishment this has been and an undertaking his administration has taken on. What a difference his city looks like from 2013 to today. He’s called Plano, the Center of the Universe and he’s helped put us on the map as just that.
There’s a lot to learn about Legacy West, the 240-acre mixed-use project located on the southwest corner of the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121 in the Dallas suburb our beautiful Plano, Texas. Did you know that it was J.C. Penney who selected Team Legacy, a development partnership with KDC, The Karahan Cos., and Columbus Realty, to develop the acreage surrounding its corporate headquarters? That’s impressive when you think about it. When most of us think of J.C. Penny’s we think of towels and back-to-school clothes, but they’re really a big hitter in the real estate world. And that’s just part of it. In fact, there’s so much to learn, that Legacy West has developed its own podcast which airs bi-monthly and covers a wide range of topics including fashion and beauty, food and drink, wellness and nutrition, and home and interior design.
Pretty exciting considering all that’s happening at Legacy West, a podcast is a fantastic way to keep up with all the news. This type of podcast is the first of its kind in the country which makes Legacy West revolutionary on yet another front.

Sources like iTunes house mass libraries of podcasts for you to download or stream on your device.
