Success for JLL's Investment Agency at the North West Property Awards

Scoops Property Deal of the Year at the prestigious awards

Manchester, 17 May 2016 – JLL's Investment Agency has won Property Deal of the Year at the 2016  North West Business Insider Property Awards, held at the Manchester Central (12 May).

JLL's Investment team was commended on Legal & General Capital's acquisition of a 50% interest of Peel's MediaCityUK at Salford Quays in Manchester, which is currently valued at £503 million. This is the second year in a row that JLL has won this award category.

A senior panel of seven judges jointly awarded JLL and Savills, who acted on the sales, commenting that the MediaCityUK transaction was much more important than just the deal - it was crucial to Peel and will be the catalyst for future development.

JLL's investment team, led by director Simon Merry, has been involved in some of the largest and most significant deals in the North West including advising Patrizia Immobilien AG's on the purchase of a 20 acre mixed-use site at Number One First Street.

Commenting on the award, Simon Merry said: "Receiving such high profile recognition for our involvement in the MediaCityUK deal is a brilliant achievement and has capped off yet another fantastic year for the team."
