Stop the Demolition of 10 Murray Street

Target: The Tasmanian Government
Region: Australia

Petition Background (Preamble):

In 1997 the Australian Institute of Architects recommended 10 Murray Street, Hobart, a 1960s city building, for inclusion in the National Estate Register. Citta Property Group has bought 10 Murray Street and intends to demolish it as part of its redevelopment of the area surrounding Parliament House.

These plans have been considered by the Sullivans Cove Waterfront Authority and the Tasmanian Heritage Council, who have granted approval for the project to commence in 2010.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, believe the demolition of 10 Murray Street to be unnecessary and short-sighted.

We call upon the Tasmanian Government to intervene to protect this landmark 1960s building, in light of its cultural and architectural significance.
