EcoOnline takes space at the Spine in Liverpool 

The software company has signed a 10-year lease for 11,500 sq ft at the Paddington Village building. 

Liverpool City Council, which owns the 14-storey Spine, will meet on Friday to rubber stamp EcoOnline’s deal. 

The agreement will see the firm occupy the ninth floor, joining the Royal College of Physicians and Clatterbridge in the building. 

A report to Liverpool City Council’s cabinet states the lease will have a break clause built in at year five and that EcoOnline will undertake its own fit-out. 

The council will also provide a right of first refusal to EcoOnline over the eighth floor after the company indicated it may wish to expand in the future. 

The right of first refusal will apply for four years. 

Liverpool City Council said that securing new occupiers at the Spine “will support the city as it emerges from the global pandemic by supporting growth and job creation in the health, science, research and education sectors”. 

“These are high-value sectors and each is critical to the city’s economic performance. Further lettings will also reduce operating costs to the council by reducing void costs associated with unoccupied floors,” the report added. 

EcoOnline provides digital health and safety solutions to organisations including the NHS.

Knight Frank and CBRE are the Spine’s retained letting agents.

The Spine was the first office to be delivered within the 30-acre Paddington Village district, part of Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter. 

A consultation on the second, the 120,000 sq ft Hemisphere, is underway.

Good news for the KQ.

Good to see, a Norway based company too, hopefully they will expand and spread the word to others in their part of the world that Liverpool can be a successful location to invest.

The Spine is the jewel in Paddington Village’s crown. Truly iconic.

I used to wonder why this building looked like it had a disease then someone explained it to me.

Truly iconic LR, really? Let’s be be kind and say instead ‘distinctive’. Yes I think that describes it.

It might be a clumpy box covered in animal print-style clad but it’s good that it’s attracting new tenants
