Adrian Wallace, boss of MHA London, said there was interest, but ‘nothing substantial’.
The news condemns the darkened and dilapidated building on The Moor to more months of standing empty and isolated as new developments go up on all sides.
WHAT ARE THE OWNERS OF DEBENHAMS SAYING?
Mr Wallace said: “The property is on the lettings market with Colliers and Savills. There has been interest but nothing substantial to report at this time. Discussions are on-going with relevant parties on all other matters.”
MHA bought it on March 26 for a bargain £1.5m after its value plunged from £2.7m – a saving of £1.2m.
WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THE BUILDING?
To the rear, Charter Square now boasts a thriving new restaurant, The Furnace, as well as an entrance to The Light cinema, the new HSBC office block and access to the Heart of the City developments off Cambridge Street.
