Hampton Roads, VA, September 7, 2016 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) announced today that is has been retained to lease 880 North Military Highway in Norfolk, VA. Located at Military Mall Circle, the Norfolk Economic Development Authority (EDA) purchased the property in 2015 and is redeveloping it for office occupancy.

"Movement Mortgage shares the excitement we have for this location," said Chuck Rigney, Assistant Executive Director for the Norfolk Economic Development Authority. "We are confident the building will be a showcase where innovative companies will grow and their employees will love the location."
