CO—RE hires Senior Development Manager to join growing team
Alex Parsons has joined central London development manager CO-RE as Senior Development Manager.
Parsons joins from Kajima Properties (Europe), where she was an Investment & Development Manager, focused on expanding and adding value to their central London commercial office portfolio. She was also Chair of the Kajima Green Team, which was responsible for introducing company initiatives to boost environmental performance.
She has worked on several major projects and deals – most notably the acquisition of the long leasehold interest in Orwell House, the planning and delivery of the speculative office scheme at 77 Coleman Street and the asset management of Grove House.
Prior to Kajima, Parsons was a Development Manager at Skanska Properties, involved in the delivery of the Monument Building and 51 Moorgate.
Parsons follows Jonathan Walker, who joined the CO—RE team as Associate Director earlier this year, as the firm continues to make a number of strategic hires in support of its growing portfolio of major London commercial office projects.
CO—RE is working on the major redevelopments of 120 Fleet Street, the former ITV London Studios at 72 Upper Ground, Lansdowne House on Berkeley Square, The Fitzrovia on Tottenham Court Road, and 20 Ropemaker, which is currently under construction and pre-let to Linklaters.
Parsons says: “The pandemic has caused us all to question the way we work and what we need from our office space. Now is a more exciting time than ever to join CO—RE, who are delivering the best offices in London with a forward-thinking focus on collaboration, sustainability and wellbeing.”
David Ainsworth, Chief Executive of CO—RE, adds: “Alex is our fourth major hire since the start of the lockdown and reflects our desire to recruit the very best talent in the market and to add to our existing highly experienced team. Her impressive track record speaks for itself, but we are particularly excited about the experience that she can bring to the table from her work on major projects like 77 Coleman Street.”
