Parliament Square Hobart Precinct Development Axed

 The development of Parliament Square that would see several 20th Century buildings demolished, including the 1960s office block 10 Murray Street, and the 1950s Art Deco former Government Printing Offices has been rejected. RMPAT (the Resource Management Planning Tribunal) refused the application for development.

  1. Good news - while I can't say I am particularly in love with the look of 10 Murray St, it seemed incredibly wasteful to knock down a building that is perfectly functional.

    Also, every time I heard/read the words whole "Federation Square-style development" I couldn't help but cringe...

    Great angle, by the way.
