Stormy weather didn’t deter crowds from taking their first look at Plano’s massive Legacy West development, which hosted its grand opening celebration this weekend.
Even though large portions of the giant mixed-use development remain unfinished—including several large office buildings and a 55,000-square-foot food hall—stores and restaurants throughout the development gave guests a taste of what’s already opened, and what’s still to come.
We’ve gathered here some social media posts from throughout the weekend. Check the photo gallery to the right for our photographs from a stormy opening night on Friday.
