Berkeley Group’s first presence in mainland China

Jones Lang LaSalle announced today the opening of the Berkeley marketing suite in the offices of Jones Lang LaSalle.  With the opening of its marketing suite, Berkeley Group—the award-winning developer of residential-led, mixed-use schemes, with a history of creating successful, sustainable places—is significantly strengthening its reach to a growing base of Chinese buyers seeking investments opportunities in the United Kingdom.

The marketing suite is Berkeley Group’s first presence in mainland China. The suite is a show-case of Berkeley Group’s properties such as 190 Strand, 375 Kensington High Street.  The Marketing Suite is opened to investors who are interested in learning about Berkeley projects in the UK.

“With the growing interests of Chinese investors of the real estate market in the UK, we feel it is time to provide a place where investors can visit and be introduced to the Berkeley products in Beijing,” said by Paul Bennett, International Business Development Director, Berkeley Group.

Berkeley Group and Jones Lang LaSalle developed a strong, global partnership and have worked together for decades, jointly servicing customers from many markets around Asia. “Jones Lang LaSalle’s deep understanding of the needs and motivations of Chinese buyers and Berkeley Group’s focus on creating exceptional and sustainable places that create long-term value are the key to our successful partnership. By adding China to our joint portfolio markets, we are taking our partnership to the next level,” said by Julien Zhang, Managing Director, North region, Jones Lang LaSalle.  “Asian investors have long become an important group of investors in UK property and we now both see great potential of Chinese investments in the United Kingdom.”

Berkeley Group is committed to provide quality properties in the United Kingdom to buyers from around the world, with its knowledge, experience and proven track record of more than 30 years in the UK property market.  Berkeley Group currently offers over 70 projects in London and the South East of England.
