In a move to boost its project and development offerings, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), headquartered in Chicago, acquired Merritt & Harris Inc. M&H provides construction-related consulting services to real estate lenders and investors during new construction, renovations and workouts.
M&H is headquartered in New York with offices in Glendale, CA, and Deerfield Beach, FL. The company has been involved with high-profile projects including World Trade Center Towers 3 and 4, the One Manhattan West and Hudson Yards Platform Towers A and C.
“We were immediately impressed by JLL’s reach and depth of services,” said M&H president and CEO Manny Kratsios. “This is an ideal situation for us to expand our business, provide a broader platform to our clients and give our people opportunities to continue their professional growth.”
