West Plano's $3 billion Legacy West development has landed another big name business. Boeing will locate the headquarters for its newly formed global services division in the 250-acre mixed-use project at the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121. The aerospace giant will join Toyota, JPMorgan Chase, Liberty Mutual Insurance and FedEx with offices in the new development. Boeing will occupy office space in the Legacy Urban Village - a development of shops, apartments, restaurants and office space at the northwest corner of the tollway and Legacy Drive. The aircraft firm announced in December that it was setting up the new global services business unit to expand its revenues from servicing aircraft and related businesses. The new Plano office will be the headquarters for that division. The Chicago-based aircraft maker plans to have the new division up and running with a few dozen professionals by later this year. "Texas continues to be a global powerhouse in business expansion and relocation because of our economic policies that encourage industry leaders, like Boeing, to expand their operations here," Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement.
