Dallas’ Job Momentum Drives Office Development

JLL secures $61 million in construction financing for One Legacy West

DALLAS, Oct. 19, 2015 – A prime location in Legacy, renowned as one of the country’s top job hubs, drove lender interest to back the Dallas region’s newest project. On behalf of Gaedeke Group LLC, JLL’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has secured $61 million in construction financing for the development of One Legacy West, a 327,856-square-foot Class AA office tower. US Bank provided the loan.
Managing Director Tim Jordan and Executive Vice President Mark Brandenburg led the JLL team on the transaction.

“The Dallas/Fort Worth metro area continues to boast some of the top fundamentals for job growth and, in turn, office development,” said Brandenburg. “The Legacy submarket’s rising rents, high absorption rate and backing from proven sponsorship bodes well for the property’s future performance.”
One Legacy West is located adjacent to Toyota and FedEx’s headquarters in Plano’s Legacy submarket, providing convenient access to the area’s highway system and retail offerings. The proposed 14-story tower will feature unique architecture, a two-story lobby, unobstructed views, 1,200 parking spaces and a reflective pond bordering the property.
