Reports of the potential sale come after RioCan and HBC said that they would be exploring a sale of the property, with BCRE and Brookfield Financial Real Estate Group previously having been named as parties of interest.

The Granville St. location is just one of 10 properties that the joint venture between RioCan and HBC holds across Canada, with HBC holding an 88.1% of the REIT.

It remains to be seen whether a deal will come to fruition, with both HBC and RioCan yet to confirm the rumours.
