Digital marketing company, Hasgrove, is in advanced talks with UK Land & Property and Pochin to take the top floor of Walker House in Exchange Flags, Liverpool city centre.
If the deals completes, Hasgrove hopes to move into the 10,000 sq ft office by the New Year. Downing's The Capital off Old Hall Street was runner-up for the media requirement.
Walker is currently undergoing a £15m refurbishment by the joint venture developers. The Ministry of Defence is set to become the first tenant when it moves in to 70,000 sq ft on the lower floors next month. The rest of the 300,000 sq ft building is due for completion at the end of the year. The first phase of Exchange Flags, the 160,000 sq ft Horton House, is now 80% let, with only three smaller suites remaining.
The listed Hasgrove group includes the recently acquired Internet specialist Amaze, which was founded in Liverpool in the 1990s although the firm later moved to Daresbury.
Hasgrove is currently based at St John's Court on Quay Street and has a live requirement for an office to consolidate its divisions in Manchester.
Mark Worthington at Irving Rice, now part of CB Richard Ellis, is advising Hasgrove in Liverpool. David Laws at Edwards & Co is retained in Manchester. Keppie Massie and King Sturge are joint letting agents for Walker House. Quoting rents are £16.50/sq ft.
