Talk of Plano: Sights and buzz from Legacy West grand opening


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.

The weekend festivities kicked off Friday morning with a ceremony that coincided with the 144th anniversary of the city of Plano’s incorporation:

Community Impact Newspaper was there with a camera to document the ceremony, which featured city officials and the developers and real estate partners behind Legacy West, including former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach.

The grand opening weekend offered some their first glimpse of the Renaissance Dallas hotel, expected to open in July on Legacy Drive:

Some visitors also got an early look at Legacy Hall, the development’s 55,000-square-foot food hall. The facility is expected to open in the fall.

The organizers for the grand opening event scheduled music and entertainment throughout the weekend.
