E Smith Legacy Holdings is the umbrella corporation of a host of companies involved in civil and social infrastructure construction; commercial real estate development to include retail, office, and hospitality; and commercial brokerage services. Headed by former Dallas Cowboys football great and Hall of Fame running back, Emmitt Smith, E Smith Legacy Holdings was organized in 2008.  Mr. Smith is also known throughout Dallas for his philanthropic work with his wife, Pat, through Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities.

Both companies look forward to the synergies to be gained by a partnership between them as they tackle real estate development projects in the south, southwest, and mid-Atlantic United States.
