2013 1Q Suburban Dallas

• Much like Reston Town Center (near Washington, DC), Legacy Town Center was not the initial development phase. Rather, it was planned as a mixed-use centerpiece to complement the existing business parks in the overall Legacy area. • LTC has evolved into one of the region’s most desirable suburban office addresses and has created an focal point and identity for the Legacy area, as well as the Far North Dallas submarket. • While complicated to plan and expensive to build, town centers are claimed to earn a performance premium. LTC, is a clear case where this is true – consistently out-performing the market in occupancy and rent levels. • This premium extends beyond the town center. The Legacy area also earns a top rank in office occupancy and rents due to this enhanced identity, capturing almost half of all the Far North Dallas submarket’s net office absorption since 2010.
