One Legacy West tops out: Celebration marks final beam of 14-story tower

May 30, 2016

Hundreds on Thursday attended a topping out ceremony for One Legacy West, an early part of Plano’s most anticipated development.

Such celebrations are a tradition for new construction projects that recognize those who have worked on the project and mark a significant milestone in its fruition.

During the ceremony, the final beam, painted white for the occasion, was accompanied by the Texas and American flags and hoisted to the top of the 14-story structure. The beam was signed by Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere, City Council members Rick Brady and Tom Harrison, Gaedeke Group employees and countless construction workers.

The mayor called the tower “the entrance of Legacy West and the center of the universe,” noting its powerhouse corporate neighbors Toyota, Frito-Lay, JCPenney, Liberty Mutual and FedEx.

One Legacy West’s 327,856-square-foot office tower located at the southeast corner of Legacy Drive and Sam Rayburn Tollway is set to be completed in December. Upon completion, the tower will feature an onsite management and engineering team, a 24-hour security officer and card key access.

It will also include a conference center, fitness center, and a tenant lounge and game area. Tenants will have access to a concierge service and a courtesy shuttle to Legacy West’s 300,000 square feet of retail and restaurants and the Renaissance Hotel.

The Gaedeke project will also feature a Wi-Fi-enabled outdoor terrace with collaborative seating areas and transparent fireplaces connecting the parking garage to the building. There will be electric car charging stations and secure bike storage in the garage.

“We put a lot of thought and effort in the designing of this building for the 21st century.  We could not imagine a better location than the progressive city of Plano” said Sabine Gaedeke Stener, CEO of Gaedeke. “Quality buildings like this allow Plano to attract world-class companies.”

The mayor told the ceremony crowd he’s “excited about this project and what it means to the community.”
