Tesla coming to Legacy West with new Plano showroom



Plano’s $3 billion Legacy West development has landed another high-profile business.

It’s not as big a deal as Toyota. And there won’t be nearly as many people working there as in Liberty Mutual Insurance’s new regional office.
But you can add the Tesla name to the list of tenants in the new Legacy West Urban Village at Legacy and Communications drives.
The innovative electric auto manufacture is planning a new showroom in the middle of the Legacy West Urban Village retail district on Windrose Avenue, according to documents filed with the Plano planning department.
Legacy West seeking approval for a “new automobile dealer” specific use permit for the planned Tesla showroom on the east side of Windrose Avenue.
“Tesla store will be a great addition to Legacy West,” developer Fehmi Karahan says in the planning and zoning commission request.
Tesla recently opened a large Dallas showroom and service center near the southeast corner of Cedar Springs Road and Mockingbird Lane near the entrance of Love Field.
The luxury car manufacturer also has a showroom at Dallas’ NorthPark Center mall. 
And Tesla has another facility in Carrollton.
The Plano zoning filings say that Telsa plans to have only 10 vehicles at the Legacy West outlet.
