Former Louis Severin Building
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The Consolidated Fertilisers building is of local significance as a place associated with one of the pioneers of Cairns, Louis Severin, and as a building surviving from the late 19th century—one of the few built in masonry at that time. Louis Severin was a contractor and hardware importer and was the supplier of much of the fixtures and fittings required to build the developing region, as well as a major contractor of the period who completed structures such as the early wharves of the Cairns' waterfront.
