May be a little more balanced than you think nicknack - there is a significant number of supporters of the view of the gas-holders - as demonstrated by the number of signatories to a petition to retain them and the efforts of SydSOC to successfully apply to have a local listing granted.
At the outset my BH and I were relatively neutral to their presence - even though they dominate the vista from the front windows of our house. Our views changed though when we realised how dis-benefited our immediate locale would be by the loss of the Traffic Improvement measures and the provision of the parking to the rear of the Livesey Hall.
Our view evolved - especially when both civic societies objected to the proposals and demonstrated woefully how little they knew of - or valued - the benefits of the redevelopment to which I refer.
And those feelings for the gas-holders moved towards them becoming unloved.
