Dallas Innovates: Legacy West Is The Headquarter of Headquarters

Legacy West Developer Turned Ross Perot Sr.’s Vision Into a Reality

Legacy West developer Fehmi Karahan is responsible for the establishment of the 240-acre mixed-use development that has attracted corporate giants and businesses alike. The headquarters-filled business park in Legacy West was made possible by Karahan’s purchase of thousands of acres from Ross Perot Sr. The area, once consisting of rolling grasslands, is now booming with retail, business, and entertainment opportunities.

“I’m a beneficiary of [Perot’s] vision … and even though I get a lot of credit, if it wasn’t for his vision of putting this together, I would not have had the good fortune to develop Legacy Town Center, The Shops at Legacy, and Legacy West,” Karahan says.

Legacy West has influenced the surrounding area with three major impacts: home to major corporate headquarters, high-paying jobs, and rising home prices in a healthy housing market. These regional impacts are the result of careful planning and thought.

“Legacy West is beautiful architecturally, and everything else. It’s first class,” Karahan says, adding that he understands what Legacy West has done for the entire North Texas community and the State of Texas in terms of jobs and community involvement. Read the full article at
