Minerva has a takeover bid from Dubai wealth fund
Limitless is a division of the multibillion-pound Dubai World group of companies, owned by the Gulf state. Limitless is taking advice from UBS about the potential bid. It has been suggested that the bid could be £322m.
As yet there has been no formal bid from Limitless, according to reports.
Minerva confirmed that it was examining a number of options, including a joint venture partner to replace Lend Lease, an equity investor or a full sale.
Minerva's deal to sell a 50 per cent stake in Park Place to Lend Lease for £92.5m was aborted. It was expected that John Lewis would hold anchor store position, however a tenancy agreement has yet to be signed.
Park Place will provide 900,000 sq ft of retail space and restaurants, when completed. John Lewis had previously confirmed a requirement for 240,000 sq ft on the site.
