JPMorgan Chase purchased 49 acres at Headquarters Drive and Communications Parkway in Plano, as well as a 1-acre parcel at the corner of Communications Parkway and Legacy Drive, in which the bank plans to develop a Chase branch to serve its employees and the West Plano community.
The financial institution acquired the property from SWC Tollway & 121 LLC, which is a partnership between JC Penney & Co., Fehmi Karahan's The Karahan Cos., KDC and Columbus Realty. Karahan is the master developer for Legacy West.
Recently, Karahan told the Dallas Business Journal the 255-acre Legacy West mixed-use development's value of real estate has reached nearly $3.2 billion. Two years ago, Karahan estimated the project to have a build-out cost of $2 billion, but the project has proved more successful than he had originally imagined. Show Full Story
