By Clare Weir

A Belfast based commercial property firm has doubled in size.

The team from Myles Danker is joining Savills Belfast, which will see the firm expand from six to twelve people, all of whom will be located at Savills' office in May Street. A full range of commercial property services including agency, professional services and property management will now be accessible under one roof.

Savills is already successful in Northern Ireland working with the likes of Victoria Square, Rushmere Shopping Centre, Craigavon and The Quays, Newry and the larger company will have the capacity to deal with further emerging opportunities in the market.

Myles Danker founding director, Stuart Danker, will play a consultancy role and is joined by the team, including director Neal Morrison and associate Andrey McStraw.

The business unit, to trade under the Savills name, will see director Anne-Marie Lonergan continue to lead the team with particular focus on the agency side, Neal Morrison will be responsible for driving the professional services side and associate Louise Fuller will continue in her role of managing some of Northern Ireland's most high profile retail schemes, providing property management services.

Neal Morrison, director of Savills, formerly of Myles Danker, said that the opportunity to work within the network of a global market leader was exciting and a testament to the success of Myles Danker.

"Our respective strengths complement each other and will allow both teams to provide an all-encompassing service offering to clients," he said.

Angus Potterton, managing director of Savills Ireland, added: "The joining of the former Myles Danker team with the Savills Belfast team means Savills is now well positioned to cater for the broad needs of our client base across Ireland, boosting the existing team and reflecting the structure of services our Dublin headquarters provides."
