Lincoln’s £1.8m Google-esque hub open for business

Lincoln’s new £1.8 million Google-style office hub is now open for business, and The Lincolnite went for a tour.

The Mosaic, which was built by Lincolnshire Co-Op over the last six months, opened in Thomas Parker House on Silver Street.

It is designed to be a space for small digital businesses to grow in the city, with high-speed internet, hot desks, meeting rooms, offices and a café.

ScholarPack is the flagship business that has already taken up spaces in the building, but there are around 75 desks up for grabs as well as eight offices varying in size.

Hotdesks on the bottom floor are available for £100pcm, a dedicated desk area upstairs for £185pcm and offices from £500pcm.

When a business moves in they get a cube in the stairwell dedicated to their business.

The space is designed to be open for businesses to collaborate with each other and for smaller businesses to move into ever bigger spaces as they hire more people.

Lincolnshire Co-Op said that if all goes well then they could expand the offices and would even look at building a new space in the future.

Lincolnshire Co-operative’s chief executive officer Ursula Lidbetter said: “More tech and digital businesses are coming to Lincolnshire and the county’s traditional sectors, such as manufacturing, agriculture, food production and defence are investing heavily in digitalisation.

“We want to work together with the digital community and the county council to support this emerging sector, helping businesses and the local economy grow.”
