Legacy West, a 415,000-square-foot mixed use center in Plano, Tex. opening June 2, is an example of the new breed of shopping center, with its compact design, heavy emphasis on e-commerce brands, concept stores from established retailers, strong food lineup, and office, residential and a hotel on the property to ensure a captive audience.
While other mall projects have been scrapped or stalled as the retail industry adjusts to store closures and decreasing foot traffic, Legacy West has defied that script. "Dallas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S.," said its developer Fehmi Karahan. "It's a tax-friendly environment, so our economy is booming. Plano is the fastest-growing city north of Dallas."

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
