Body Corporate Take on Sunland on Q1 Tower Defects

Residents add “the cost of required repairs is not yet known but is likely to be millions of dollars.”

Sunland Group chief told the AFR he is confident there will be a resolution “which will include the body corporate accepting that it failed to maintain a proper maintenance regime for the building.”

He added “the body corporate has a due care to maintaining the building and in this instance a proper regime has not been upheld.”

“I think everyone is entitled to their own views but justice will prevail.”

Developed in 2005, and pipping Melbourne’s Eureka Tower as Australia’s tallest residential building, the 80-level tower includes 526 apartments.

In 2009, an owners corporation of a Pyrmont apartment block, in Sydney, won $3.1 million and set a precedent for what constitutes systemic default in buildings.

Walter Constructions was the building of that Harris Street property.
