Developers are getting ready to begin construction on a 15-story Renaissance luxury hotel tower within the highly-anticipated $2 billion Legacy West development in West Plano.
The 304-room luxury hotel at 6181 Legacy Drive in Plano will feature modern, upscale finishes with more than 100,000 square feet of conference room and meeting space, restaurants, outdoor bar terrace and third-level amenity deck with a swimming pool, bar, spa and fitness center.
The developer of the project, Sam Moon Group, plans to host a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 2 to kick off the construction of the new hotel tower, which will also include an attached 470-car parking garage for hotel guests.
Dallas-based HKS's hospitality group is the architect of the project. Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor. Other members of the real estate community involved in the deal include, JLL, Bancorp South, Blum Engineering, Looney and Associates and Brockett/Davis/Drake Inc.
Sam Moon Group expects construction to be complete on the hotel by spring 2017.
The hotel is one of the key elements of Legacy West that developer Fehmi Karahan has said he wants to get off the ground all at once as Legacy West continues to add to its corporate client roster. Karahan is the master developer of Legacy West.
The development will be the new home of Toyota's new North American headquarters, the new corporate home of FedEx Office and a regional hub for Liberty Mutual Insurance. FedEx Office is expected to begin moving into its new corporate office in September. The other offices are in the midst of construction.
