If they wanted their offices there, they could have rented space at any time prior to Moshiri and pals buying it ffs
But they didn't rent space there. They went for the cheaper option of some office space on the opposite side of the road.
Now that our owner has a significant stake in such an iconic city-centre location, why shouldn't Everton take advantage of it.
It's quite handy when booking meetings with investors, sponsors etc, who may have never been to the city before.
"Where are your offices?"
"Head for the Liver Birds, and we are directly underneath those in the Liver Building, you can't miss it"
Everybody knows the Liver Building. It's probably the most famous landmark in the city. It's a truly iconic location that is hopefully soon to be joined by a truly iconic stadium right on the banks of our historic waterfront.
