Hull City Council officials say firms showing interest in new £130m city centre development.
Hull City Council officials say more than 20 businesses have shown an interest in the new £130m Albion Square development.
Outline planning permission for new shops, apartments, an ice rink and a multi-storey car park at the city centre site was granted in April.
The council-backed project will see the demolition of the former BHS and Co-op department stores with the derelict Edwin Davis store having already been bulldozed.
A new report suggests strong interest in the proposed 16,752 sq m of retail floorspace earmarked for the centre.
It says: "A number of local and national business owners have been approached by the council and some 20-plus businesses have shown an interest in the Albion Square development."
