Mini-Bellagio fountain debuts at Plano center

BY Al Urbanski

Will public spaces be the new anchor tenants in the shopping centers and mixed-use facilities of the 21st Century?

That’s the opinion of J. Wickham Zimmerman, whose construction company Outside the Lines is unveiling a Bellagio-esque fountain that will present choreographed water shows at Legacy West in Plano, Texas.

“Retailers recognize the importance of integrating thoughtfully designed gathering spaces and artful show fountains to drive foot traffic,” Zimmerman said.

OTL’s fountain will cover 3,500 sq. ft. across three basins. It incorporates 131 nozzles and 398 LED lights to produce programmable water displays synchronized to 14 songs.

One of the largest mixed-use developments in North Texas, Legacy West contains 415,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space, a 55,000 square-foot food hall; more than 1,300 luxury residential units, and a 303-room Renaissance Legacy Hotel.

The project’s developer, Fehmi Karahan, said he envisions the fountain becoming the “hallmark of Legacy West.”
