Carter Jonas Cambridge celebrates at new office launch
Having relocated its professional services team to One Station Square, CB1 in June, Carter Jonas welcomed more than 150 people from across the region’s business community to the launch party of its new office.
The night had a Champagne and Tastes of Cambridgeshire theme to celebrate the city’s pivotal role in Carter Jonas’ story, as well as providing the firm with the chance to thank clients, members of the property industry, local businesses, friends and work colleagues for their support. Guests were treated to an array of canapes and local produce from La Hogue, a family owned farm shop and café run by Chris and Jo Reeks. The event’s raffle and other entertainments raised further funds for Hodson’s Folly, an historic Cambridge landmark which Carter Jonas has pledged to lead the effort to raise the £16,000 needed to reinstate the structure to its former glory.
Tim Jones, Partner and Head of Carter Jonas Cambridge Office, said: “Cambridge is one of the fastest growing economic regions and important commercial hubs in the UK. It also holds an integral place in our business as demonstrated by our investment in our fantastic new office. With One Station Square and our residential offices at The Marque, 141 Hills Road and 169 Histon Road, our commercial, planning and development, rural and residential teams feel even better placed to deliver the best results for our clients.”
The relocation marks an exciting new chapter in Carter Jonas’ 162 year history in Cambridge. In January 2015, the firm acquired two well-known independent Cambridge based property companies: Januarys, the commercial and planning consultants, and residential sales and lettings agency, Bradshaws. Over the last two years, in line with a successful growth strategy, revenue has increased by 63 per cent with 93 property specialists now based in Cambridge.
