DALLAS-Los Angeles-based Berkeley Investments has followed its leasing team for 1700 Pacific to Jones Lang LaSalle, turning over keys to the 1.3-million-sf high rise in a practically no-compete scenario. The decision has been made in the midst of $2-million renovation at the CBD office building.

The trigger for the change was the move of Jeff Eckert and James Esquivel in early May from CB Richard Ellis’ local team to the JLL ranks. The senior vice presidents have been part of the 49-story tower’s leasing team since Berkeley Investments bought it in mid-June 2005 for $96 million. CBRE generally doesn’t comment on assignment changes. Lincoln Property Co.’s management pact stays intact.

“The ownership group had key people that they felt comfortable with. They like the match with them and with our company,” J. Dale Ray II, JLL’s managing director in Dallas, tells GlobeSt.com. “We were just very fortunate that they decided to pick it up with us.”
