JLL to close Liverpool office

The Liverpool office of Jones Lang LaSalle is to close, 15 years after it opened under King Sturge.

JLL acquired King Sturge in 2011 and has now announced the results of its latest business review.

The Liverpool office, which employs around 15 people and is headed by Chris Prescott, will close along with branches in Bath and Newcastle.

JLL said in a statement: "Following a review of its regional business, Jones Lang LaSalle is proposing to close three of its smaller regional offices in Bath, Liverpool and Newcastle.

Existing instructions will be serviced out of our established regional hubs in Bristol, Manchester and Leeds respectively and we are presently seeking redeployment opportunities for the 30 affected staff to these offices. Where there are no redeployment opportunities a limited number of redundancies are likely.

"At the same time the firm is planning to relocate and improve its workspace in Norwich and Nottingham and refurbish its office in Exeter. A consolidated workplace strategy for the London estate is also currently being prepared.

"Jones Lang LaSalle prides itself on the depth of resource throughout the country and by growing its businesses in Manchester, Leeds and Bristol will be able to provide an even more efficient and cohesive service to clients."

The Manchester office of JLL employs around 140 people in Manchester.

Give it a year or two and see them quietly open up another office. 2 good instructions and they will think "the market is moving we have to be there!" – See you soon chaps!

Another of the national agents move out of liverpool – Only CBRE left of the big 5, how long before they go the same way?

Aye. Never saw that one coming (ahem…!).
(they are a good team in that office so hopefully they’ll stick close and good things might happen)

By northern lad

not a shining endorsement of Liverpool, its future plans nor the ability of the mayor to get anything done (other than fill the pockets of his chums)

Interesting to discover yesterday that Helen Moss left for LSH in London last month. Good move.
