Double award win for Jones Lang LaSalle at the IAS Awards

National Industrial & Logistics team wins Best Investment Transaction and Deal of the Year.

Nearly 400 guests assembled at the Park Lane Hotel, in London’s West End on Thursday 27th September 2012 for the 25th Anniversary IAS Awards.  The Jones Lang LaSalle National Industrial & Logistics team had a successful evening by winning two of the award categories for Best Investment Transaction for the UK Logistics Fund and Deal of the Year (under 50,000 sq ft) for Chancerygate for the pre-let to Kintetsu World Express UK Ltd at Mathesen Way in Poyle.

Collecting the award for Best Investment Transaction for the UK Logistics Fund, the judges commented: “This particular entry illustrated a great result for both the vendor and the purchaser.  The sheer scale of the deal was record-breaking, and it required real skill to co-ordinate a transaction of this size.  Deals like this certainly don’t happen very often and the judges felt that the outcome was to the great credit of those involved.”

Jones Lang LaSalle's advised on the sale of the UK Logistics Fund (UKLF) to a joint venture between SEGRO and Moorfield for £312.2 million which completed in January 2012.​
