Greenridge director Bik Bhuptani said: "With NCP recently secured on a long-term lease, The Secretary of State openly stating that they wish to remain at the property and significant on-going investment and development into Sheffield, this is an asset that still has huge potential for growth.

"An acquisition at this level, based on indicative debt terms, would produce an attractive cash on cash return in excess of 10 per cent per year."

Greenridge added that the area was on the up, with a hotel, more homes and a new tech hub being created in the immediate vicinity.

The company is being advised by Knight Frank, whose director Rebecca Farnsworth added: "In a market short of opportunities, Hartshead Square presents an attractive Sharia-compliant investment with exceptionally secure income, the majority of which benefits from RPI-linked increases. Sheffield is an exciting and evolving city to invest in."
