Juniper celebrates its 5th birthday as Cambridge records impressive market performance

“We set up Juniper Real Estate just as the economy and the property markets nosedived in 2008/09” reflects Jamie Green. “In hindsight, maybe it wasn’t too bad a thing – no one was doing any deals so we didn’t miss out on anything and it gave us time to set up the business, talk to clients and build up our book of instructions. We were indebted to Threadneedle, Howard Property Group and Exemplar in those early months for setting us up with some major office instructions, such as Cambridge Research Park and 101 Cambridge Science Park. The latter being unquestionably the largest and the best quality office instruction on the market at the time. Juniper was up and running.” Adding his thoughts, Mike Ayton comments, “Over the 5 years we have continued to focus on a selective instruction base where we know we can deliver the highest level of individual client service. Over the past year, our turnover has more than doubled, reflecting the overall strong performance of the Cambridge market where take up of offices and laboratories, which is a mainstay of our business, is close to 800,000 sq ft; and where investment activity reached £236m over an 18 month period, more than double any other provincial centre. Cambridge continues to grow and the recent announcement that AstraZeneca will build a new 800,000 sq ft UK headquarters is a major boost to the City.”
