NatWest could sell tower
Monday 23 March 1998
NATIONAL Westminster Bank said yesterday that it would consider an attractive offer for the former NatWest Tower, the tallest building in the City, even though it has no immediate plans to sell. The bank was responding to weekend newspaper reports which said NatWest received and rejected a pounds 200m offer from Wates City of London for the 43-storey building, which last year was renamed the International Financial Centre.
"There's no change in our attitude, which is we have no plans to sell it, but if someone made an offer we would take a look,'' said Terrence Collis, a spokesman for NatWest. Mr Collis said some companies might have sounded NatWest out on a price but there had been no serious approaches.
