In the half-year results, Qunitain Estates said it has ended talks with the current partner, after the partner failed to deliver part of the proposed financing structure and will launch a formal market look for a new partner in the new year.
Adrian Wyatt, chief executive, said: “We took the view that we should cease the negotiations as the letting programme was getting better and stronger… and we felt that we would be better served going to the market.”
Recently, Quintain secured Nike and Gap as anchor tenants at LDO.
