The building had been leaking since initial construction. There had been numerous ad hoc attempts to fix bits of the problem, but these generally failed and the endemic problems remained. The 2 penthouses had leaking balconies, leaking rear door thresholds, and leaking planter boxes. There were 3 leaking skylights. The common area sundeck leaked; water seeped through walls of most units as the cavity flashing was totally inadequate. The result was extensive internal water damage, peeling paint, rotting carpet and stench.
Roof access is by crane blocking the street requiring council and resident approvals.
