Over the course of the next few years, Plano’s Legacy area will grow to have almost as many workers as downtown Dallas, according to a recent article by the Dallas Morning News.
The DMN gleaned this forecast from the commercial real estate firm, Jones Lang LaSalle. They pointed out that the business district is already home to large corporate employers such as Toyota Motor Corp., JPMorgan Chase, FedEx Office and Liberty Mutual Insurance. Their numbers also include local employers and employers in south Frisco.
“Overall, we estimate that greater Legacy’s job base has increased by 15,000 since 2015,” explains Jack Crews, the managing director of Jones Lang LaSalle, in a report about the Legacy area. “We estimate that the daytime workforce is up to around 100,000 today. Looking out over the next few years, Legacy will continue to intensify as a business hub.”
