Jones Lang LaSalle's Manchester team today began work in its new office on the 10th floor of Chancery Place, the 105,000 sq ft building by Irish developer Blue Cube on Brown Street in the city centre.
Jonathan Mills, head of the Jones Lang LaSalle Manchester office, said: "Our move reaffirms the company's continued commitment to doing business in the North West and delivering to a diverse portfolio of clients."
The firm has moved from 82 King Street to take 7,800 sq ft in the £21m building, on which it is letting agent. Jones Lang LaSalle advised on the acquisition of the Chancery Place site in 2007 and its project and development services team project managed the building's construction and fit-out. As well as marketing the office and retail space at Chancery Place, Jones Lang LaSalle's investor property management team will advise on asset management.
Peter Lees, head of Jones Lang LaSalle's regional project and development services team, added: "Chancery Place has been a rewarding project to be involved with, reflecting a true team effort, within Jones Lang LaSalle and the wider project team, to ensure that the building's design has become a reality. The end result is a striking glass-fronted building offering superb modern accommodation in a prime location."
The 15 storey-building was designed by HKR Architects and built by John Sisk & Son.
