Jones Lang LaSalle's New Jersey office saw tremendous activity in 2005, significantly growing its presence in the state's commercial real estate arena.

Since expanding its New Jersey office in late 2004, the company has increased the size of its staff from 14 employees to 26 employees, encompassing a broad range of fully integrated disciplines including tenant representation, leasing, investment sales, facility and property management and project management and development services.
