JLL moves Manchester office to Chancery Place

Jones Lang LaSalle confirmed its relocation to Chancery Place, the 105,000 sq ft office development where it is letting agent in central Manchester.

The firm, which opened in Manchester in 1995, has taken 7,800 sq ft of space on the building's 10th floor, on a 15 year lease, from Chancery Place Developments, a vehicle of Irish developer Blue Cube.

Chancery Place is set for completion in October this year and Jones Lang LaSalle will take occupation in December.

Jonathan Mills, head of Jones Lang LaSalle's Manchester office, said: "Our move to larger premises from our nearby King Street address reflects the firm's ongoing commitment to investing in its North West business.

"We have seen phenomenal growth since we first opened our doors in the city over 13 years ago, with just four members of staff. With a current headcount of 65 people we have simply outgrown our existing space."

He concluded: "The firm has had a strong involvement with Chancery Place, originally acquiring the site back in 2007. We are leasing agents for the office and retail elements; and our building consultancy team is project managing the construction, working closely with main contractors Sisk, to successfully bring the works to completion."

Jones Lang LaSalle is joint agent with Savills. Quoting rents are £32.50/sq ft.
