A Plano tower that just sold is now the second high-profile Dallas-area office sale in the last week.

The purchase of the One Legacy Circle office high-rise in West Plano’s Legacy business park comes at a time when few office buildings are changing hands.

The eight-story, more than 214,000-square-foot property on the Dallas North Tollway was built in 2008. It’s more than 70% leased to tenants including Morgan Stanley, Bread Financial and TBX Employee Benefits.

The building was sold by Franklin Street Partners to a real estate partnership represented by Dallas’ Gildenson Real Estate. Franklin Street owned the property since 2011.

The Plano tower sale comes a week after downtown Dallas’ 1.2 million-square-foot Plaza of the Americas office and retail complex changed hands. The two-tower office complex with a retail atrium is the largest such transaction so far this year in North Texas.

Office building sales have slowed this year because of high interest rates and a leasing slowdown. Through the first three quarters of 2023, about $1.2 billion in D-FW office buildings had been purchased by investors.
