Legacy Partners (“Legacy”), a privately-held national real estate firm, and HGC Investment Management announced today the groundbreaking of their 3.38-acre development site in Irving, Texas’s lakefront community of Las Colinas. The transit-oriented multifamily development, Legacy Lakeshore, will be comprised of 293 units ranging from a 580-square-foot studio to a 1,945-square-foot two-bedroom apartment. The community is set to deliver in the second or third quarter of 2021. Construction financing is being provided by BMO Harris Bank.

“Legacy Lakeshore embodies the evolution of the rapidly-growing Las Colinas community,” said Bob Panizo, Legacy’s Vice President of Development. “The building’s modern amenities and design create a lakeside living experience unlike anything else in the area.”

Legacy Lakeshore, designed by architectural firm REES Associates, Inc. and constructed by Dallas-based KWA Construction, will feature spectacular lake views; a high-grade fitness center with a yoga/spinning studio; outdoor kitchens with grilling stations; an in-ground pool and hot spa with sunbathing decks; and a dock with paddleboards and kayaks for resident use.

“Legacy Lakeshore will bring a new level of innovation and luxury to an already coveted location,” said Brian Webster, President of KWA Construction. “The first-class amenities and beauty of Lake Carolyn will make residents feel like they are always on vacation.”

The community is just steps away from stations for the DART Orange commuter rail and Las Colinas’ local Area Personal Transit System (the “APT”).
