JLL’s Leeds team celebrates Industrial Agency success at Yorkshire Property Awards

LEEDS, 9 MAY 2014 – JLL’s National Industrial & Logistics team in Leeds is celebrating winning Industrial Agency Team of the Year at last night’s Yorkshire Property Awards 2014. 

The Judges for this year’s awards highlighted that JLL had a 40 per cent penetration of the large deals which had been done across Yorkshire. They also commented on the quality of JLL’s work on high profile schemes at Markham Vale and Wakefield Europort.  A major deal was the letting at Sheffield International Freight Terminal to M&S for CBRE Global Investors.

Richard Harris, lead director in JLL’s Industrial Agency team in Leeds, said:  “We feel this award, which is on the back of a successful 12 months where the team transacted in excess of 4 million sq ft of industrial space, reflects JLL’s continued agency strength in both Yorkshire’s ‘big box’ and multi-let warehouse market.  We are proud of this achievement, which has been a real team effort, and we are looking forward to working with our clients on further successes as the year continues.”
