Groundbreaking for Plano’s One Legacy West office building has been set for Tuesday July 7.

One Legacy West is the first of two office buildings planned for Legacy West, a 240-acre mixed use urban development overseen by Gaedeke Group LLC, a Dallas-based investment firm, and spearheaded by Karahan Companies, KDC and Columbus Realty Partners.

Gaedeke Group will break ground at 10 a.m. Tuesday on the southeast corner of the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Legacy Drive, directly across the street from Toyota Motor North America Inc.’s North American headquarters.

“The One Legacy West office project will enhance Plano’s economic development efforts by allowing us to continue to compete on the world stage,” said Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere in a news release.

“It will attract companies and tenants with an affinity for quality, sustainability and unrivaled service,” LaRosiliere said.

One Legacy West and an attached six-level parking structure are expected to open in late 2016. The 14-story project is a LEED Gold design by Morrison Dilworth + Walls of Dallas. Austin Commercial is the project’s general contractor, with Andres Construction serving as construction manager and Belle Firma as landscape architect.

One Legacy West will offer 327,856 square feet of office space. Tenant amenities will include an outdoor terrace with see-through fireplaces and seating areas, conference center, fitness center and electric car-charging stations, among other features.

Gaedeke acquired the land earlier this year in an off-market transaction arranged by its president, Glenn Lickstein.
