$100 million Plano campus project lands first business tenants

$100 million Plano campus project lands first business tenants

Special Contributor

One of North Texas’ largest office campus redos has landed its first tenant.

Regent Properties is spending more than $100 million to convert the former Texas Instruments campus on U.S. Highway 75 in Plano into a mixed-use development.

The 85-acre project will include offices, retail space, apartments and hotel rooms.

California-based Regent Properties has finished the phase one renovations on four office buildings on the tract and is signing up the first tenants.

Two tech firms – Roland Technology Group and The 20 – have rented almost 23,000-square-feet in the project on the west side of U.S. 75 south of Legacy Drive.

Roland Technology is an IT support provider for small- and medium-sized businesses and The 20 is a business development group for the IT industry.

Both companies will locate in the first phase Legacy Central office building at 6600 Chase Oaks.

"We had been looking for space for months to accommodate our tremendous growth," Tim Conkle, CEO of Roland Technology Group and The 20 MSP, said in a statement. "After evaluating neighboring cities and available properties, we found that Legacy Central was the best fit for our companies and brands.

"Legacy Central’s proximity to the highway along with its wide range of amenities meets virtually every one of our needs, allowing us room to grow our staff, conduct training, entertain clients and host events."

The companies are now located further south in Plano on Republic Drive at U.S. 75.

NAI Robert Lynn’s Kent Smith and Leslie Wood negotiated the lease with Nathan Durham with Transwestern.

The former TI Plano campus was built starting the mid 1980s and has about 1 million square feet of buildings. TI still occupies space at the south end of the complex.

Regent is building a 400-seat food hall, a 200-person conference hall with an entertainment center offering beer and wine on tap and WiFi courtyards connected to hiking and biking trails to the rest of the project.

At the south end of the development, Trammell Crow Residential is building a new apartment community.

"Dynamic companies are looking for modern amenities to support their organization’s growth and a creative environment where their employees love to work, so we transformed the TI Campus with that objective in mind," Regent Properties director Amy Castellanos said.

Looking For An Apartment Is Harder Than I Thought

Looking For An Apartment Is Harder Than I Thought

I live in Plano, TX and I have stayed with my parents for too long. I have decided that now is the time to branch out and get my own place, so I started my apartment search about a month ago. The thing that is crazy is the fact that I thought it would be much easier than it has been. This is like some nightmare I am having a difficult time waking up from.

The first thing that gave me trouble was trying to decide on a good price range. I created a budget before I got started, but this would only let me afford places in Plano that leave a lot to be desired. There is nothing worse than thinking you will find a gem and being showed a place that has ripped linoleum, walls with holes in them and people milling around in the halls.

Another issue I have is the fact that I pinpointed one area that I would love to live in and I just cannot afford it. This makes me feel terrible since it means that I will have to look for an apartment in an area that is not very well known to me. I am not closeminded when it comes to trying new things, but I am not trying to live in a place where I cannot be completely comfortable. I will have to do some serious research to see what I can come up with.

I thought that I would look at a few places and end up signing a l;ease right away, but it seems like my search is just getting started. I know that this is part of being a responsible adult, but I wish things were much easier than this.

“We are honored to be able to work across all of our American and Canadian communities,” said Boose at the December kickoff. “And there’s a list of children waiting for wishes in all of them. Our 3,200 employees will work with our customers and partners to provide more support and grant even more wishes, so together, we can help make that list shorter. Wishes make very sick kids feel better, and sometimes, when they feel better, they get better.”

The December kickoff also previewed two forthcoming Service Experts wish reveal parties, where wish children share their wish with the wish teams that will fulfill them. One wish party will be at Service Experts headquarters in Plano, and the other will be at a Toronto Service Experts location.

“Above and beyond our initial donation, we are incentivizing our centers to work with their partners and customers in the community to help grant even more wishes,” added Boose. “One of the highlights of the 2018 Service Experts Make-A-Wish campaign will be in April, which is World Wish Month, and April 29, World Wish Day. We’re already planning a company-wide bowl-a-thon to help us also come together in a joint mission of kindness driven by wishful thinking.”

In the United States, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. Last year alone, Make-A-Wish granted 15,300 wishes.
