A rezoning request that would provide redevelopment for the property housing the former Electronic Data Systems headquarters will be considered by Plano City Council at its upcoming meeting.

After being tabled in both August and September, the request will be considered during the Oct. 23 meeting.

Two-minute impact

The Plano Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of the rezoning request at its July 17 meeting before council tabled the item at the Aug. 14 and Sept. 11 meetings. The proposed development would be on the 91-acre former EDS campus and incorporate into the surrounding 109 acres that are part of the Legacy neighborhood.

The project is estimated to be worth $3 billion and will include over 700 midrise residential units, over 4 million square feet of lab space, at least 9 acres of open space and a hotel. If completed, developer NexPoint Development estimates 30,000 jobs will be created.

Development is expected to take place in four phases, if approved, with each cycle lasting 18 months.
