Jones Lang LaSalle is expanding and moving its Manchester office to new development, Chancery Place, in the city.

JLL is relocating its Manchester office into 7,800 sq ft at the 105,000 sq ft building, which is due to complete in October this year.

The firm says the expansion underlines its investment in its north west business.

The building is being developed by Chancery Place Developments. JLL has taken a 15 year lease on the building’s 10th floor.

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.’

‘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.’
