Justin Lossner Honored With Deal of the Year Award

DES MOINES, September 27, 2016 – Justin Lossner, Vice President with JLL, was honored with the 2016 Iowa Commercial Real Estate Association (ICREA) Award for Deal of the Year, Under $5.0M in Deal Volume, for his role in the leasing efforts of the Metro's first true speculative office delivery in over eight years.

At 30,000 square feet, Ashworth Place was a project that many in the commercial real estate industry thought was a risk they would not be willing to take. JLL led the lease-up strategy, web and media strategy and direct marketing efforts and secured two nation credit tenants, Merrill Lynch and Aerotek, each taking a floor in the building. As the result of JLL's work, the building delivered 100 percent leased.
