Trammel Crow had shared the UnitedHealth contract with JLL inthe previous contract three years ago, but JLL had not signed on in2004 when the deal was renewed. A spokesman for JLL confirmed that his company earned the new work, but says hecannot comment further.


Whit Peyton, managing director of the Bloomington office ofCBRE, says the healthcare company was treated exceptionally well."We're really disappointed by UHG's position to discontinue a majorportion of our contract," he tells "We receiveconsistently high praise, and our 90% retention rate is a testamentto that."


He says the company will still continue to handle UHG'sdevelopment work "through the conclusion of the developmentprocess" on about $250 million in projects. These include the UHG'snew 350,000-sf headquarters building, a 10-story office structurebeing built next to the company's current corporate location by2008. Another 300,000-sf office building is planned for the site,though a timetable has not been set.
