Members of six Ebby offices, 190@Jupiter, Frisco, Plano, Plano/Willow Bend, Preston Keller and Preston Plano Parkway, gathered yesterday to learn about the latest goings-on in the prospering city of Plano. The group heard from Plano City Manager Bruce Glasscock.


Just a few of the highlights included:


*  Toyota’s move to Plano and its 4,000 jobs will be the largest out-of-state move to Plano since J.C. Penney transferred its headquarters in the 1980s.


*  San Antonio-based USAA’s opening of an information-technology center in West Plano that will employ almost 700 high-tech workers.


*  FedEx Office and Print Services is moving its corporate headquarters to Plano. The project is part of a mixed-use project with offices, apartments, retail and a hotel on 240 acres surrounding the J.C. Penney headquarters.


*  A new 17-story, upscale high-rise called Haggard Place is planned for the corner of Spring Creek Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway on the former Haggard family farmland.


These are just a very few of the exciting things going on in Plano. At Ebby Halliday Realtors, we’re proud to serve Plano and all of North Texas. To learn more about North Texas, our Associates and listings, visit the award-winning
