The company J. Gadsden is a significant part of the industrial history of melbourne and this area in particular. A book has been written about their early history and development over the years. Their historical industrial buildings in coburg have already been destroyed more than a decade ago. The abbotsford and ireland st corner facade should at least be retained as it represents a tangible link to the history of the site and the industrial history of the area. The proposed building is too high and completely out of character for the historic nature of the area.
