The Cowboys have left town in Valley Ranch, but they've left behind enough land for a developer to build a couple hundred new homes, some by Pulte.

A year after the NFL team decamped for its new digs at The Star in Frisco, there's a new real estate play being made at the old Cowboys' site in Valley Ranch. The 36-acre property north of LBJ Freeway is being turned into an exclusive residential community with 230 houses.
Work crews have already knocked down most of the old Cowboys office and practice facility. But the entry wall on Cowboys Parkway still brags about the team's Superbowl wins. A new entry constructed from stone from the old Cowboys office building will be installed when the property is reborn as a community called Legends Crossing.
