JMK Solicitors acquires Newry office building and doubles workspace in £1.7m investment
Personal injury and road traffic law specialist firm JMK Solicitors has acquired its Newry office building following a £1.7 million investment which has doubled its workspace in the city.
The purchase of Canal House, a five-storey building located on St Mary’s Street, is one of the largest commercial property deals in the region this year. The transaction was supported by Danske Bank.
The overall investment includes the refurbishment of the existing JMK floor and the fit-out of an additional floor which provides a new reception area, client consultation rooms and staff catering, training and relaxation facility.
Managing director Maurece Hutchinson said: “We are delighted to be announcing this investment which will allow for further expansion of our business. We have been renting a floor of Canal House since 2014 but had outgrown this space due to increased staffing levels. We wanted to remain in Canal House and were given an opportunity to purchase the building.
“We have already completely fitted out an extra floor to an exceptionally high specification. We feel it is important to provide the best working environment for our team. This will us helps both retain and attract staff.”
