A group opposed to the demolition of the 10 Murray Street office block in Hobart is considering further legal action.

The 1960’s office block will be knocked down to make way for a $100 million redevelopment of Parliament Square after an appeal to save the building was dismissed.

The Save 10 Murray group argued the building was culturally and architecturally significant.

Spokeswoman Briony Kidd said the group was considering further action.

“We do have the option of appealing this decision to the Supreme Court, it’s simply that that’s a very expensive process,” Ms Kidd said.

“We’ve obviously put quite a lot of time and resources into the appeal up until now, which we were all happy to do because we do feel very passionately about this, but there are limits to what we can do.”
