Home for Little Wanderers picks Jones Lang LaSalle
Jones Lang LaSalle said that it has been named project manager by the Home for Little Wanderers for its new Children and Family Center at 161 South Huntington Ave. in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood.
The project team consists of the architectural firm Einhorn Yaffee Prescott Architecture & Engineering P.C. and construction manager Suffolk Construction Co., said Jones Lang LaSalle, a Chicago-based money management and real-estate services firm.
The 71,000-square-foot multi-building campus, which is currently in the design and zoning permitting stages, will feature a new state-of-the-art Children and Family Center to accommodate the Home's extensive community-based services, Jones Lang LaSalle said.
The Home for Little Wanderers is a private, nonprofit child and family service agency providing services to thousands of children and families through 20 programs.

Long-range plans call for the existing buildings to be torn down to make way for the new Children and Family Center, said Lisa Rowan-Gillis, the home's vice president for development and public relations.
