What's the objection?
Are you so keen to see some property developers make it into flats that 99% of people can't afford?
It's been empty for years (since, shock horror! Mayfair Carpets actually made good on their promise of years, and closed down for real). The current state of the building - as far as you can see from the outside - is not noticeably different from what it's been like ever since the carpet shop closed down.
The developers have been touting that development for years, but haven't done anything with it. Not even when the premises were empty. I don't think that it's the presence of squatters that's preventing them doing anything with the site.
...if you press it, they will come.
