HFD Group will not challenge St Nicholas House decision
No appeal will be made following a failed legal challenge to the redevelopment of St Nicholas House in Aberdeen.
HFD Group had claimed the process used by the city council in selecting Muse Developments as its preferred bidder was flawed.
The Court of Session ruled the process used for the St Nicholas House site was "lawful and reasonable".
The group have said they will not be appealing the decision.
A spokesman for HFD Group said: "We genuinely wished the Council and Muse developments every success with the redevelopment of St Nicholas House and we are sure that the project will exceed the authority's aspirations for the site and be 'a fantastic success' for all involved."
The former council headquarters at St Nicholas House is being demolished to make way for a new civic square, hotel and offices.
Muse Developments was named as the preferred bidder for the St Nicholas House work in May.
More than 1,000 council staff vacated the 14-storey building, erected in 1968, for the newly-refurbished Marischal College building in 2011.
Muse Developments plans a development comprising linked buildings, the tallest of which will be 10 storeys high.
