MINNETONKA, MN-UnitedHealth Group Inc., based here, has hired Jones Lang LaSalle, again, to manage about 13 million sf of space, mostly leased, in more than 400 offices nationwide. The company did not renew a contract that featured CB Richard Ellis, though the Los Angeles-based firm had joined into the contract after it completed the acquisition of Trammel Crow in December.

Trammel Crow had shared the UnitedHealth contract with JLL in the previous contract three years ago, but JLL had not signed on in 2004 when the deal was renewed. A spokesman for JLL confirmed to that his company earned the new work, but says he cannot comment further.

Whit Peyton, managing director of the Bloomington office of CBRE, says the healthcare company was treated exceptionally well. “We’re really disappointed by UHG’s position to discontinue a major portion of our contract,” he tells “We receive consistently high praise, and our 90% retention rate is a testament to that.”

He says the company will still continue to handle UHG’s development work “through the conclusion of the development process” on about $250 million in projects. These include the UHG’s new 350,000-sf headquarters building, a 10-story office structure being built next to the company’s current corporate location by 2008. Another 300,000-sf office building is planned for the site, though a timetable has not been set.
