Liverpool, 24th April 2012 – Jones Lang LaSalle has increased its presence in Liverpool by taking an additional 1,582 sq ft at its 42 Castle Street office. The property firm, which merged with King Sturge in June 2011, has had a presence in the City since 1998 and now occupies a total of 3,205 sq ft.
Head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Liverpool office Chris Prescott
commented: “‘We are delighted to be expanding in Liverpool which reaffirms of our long term commitment to the City underpinned by the continued support of our existing client base and coupled with the confidence of many new clients who have entrusted us with exciting and significant instructions.”
Martyn Green, head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Residential team in Liverpool, continued: “Taking this additional space will allow both the residential and commercial businesses to expand further as the market strengthens. The much needed space will assist with our recent launch of West Tower, and several other exciting residential schemes in Liverpool.”
Helen Moss, head of the agency team in Liverpool, concluded: “Despite market conditions, increasing the size of our office space is a reflection of the team’s ongoing success. Whilst the commercial market is still challenging, we are seeing increased levels of activity. In the office market there are a number of sizeable requirements and enquiries are creeping back up to pre-2008 levels. Equally, the industrial market has seen the big box new build and good quality stock virtually erode and we expect to see build to suit solutions on the well located, developer controlled sites across Merseyside, that are geared up to deliver buildings efficiently and quickly.”
Jones Lang LaSalle’s Liverpool office has a team of fifteen commercial and residential professionals providing property services in the areas of development consultancy, public sector consultancy, industrial and logistics, office and residential agency, commercial and residential valuation and building consultancy, including project management.
