In Launceston TAS on “General Retail and Hire -...” at 80A-88 Charles Street Launceston TAS 7250:

Mackenzie Gordon commented

I am disappointed by the lack of forethought in retaining our cultural identity in this design. I live in Launceston and love it's heritage factor and that it has retained so many if it's old buildings and facades. This is what sets us apart from other cities. Yes modernisation has its place, but not at the cost of what makes us unique. I noted in one of the replies that the mall refurbishment was brought into it. They should note that residents have heavily cruised this refurbishment. The facade may not be original, but it is far more interesting than the proposed replacement. Please reconsider keeping our heritage intact, modernising and moving with the times should not mean erasing all traces of the past
