Potts Point Ikon Building in $420,000 Facade Fix (BREAKING NEWS)
Combustible aluminium composite cladding on Sydney’s Ikon tower in Potts Point has residents of the prestigious building at odds with developer Mirvac over who will pay for the proposed $420,000 rectification work.
Owners of the converted former Landmark Royal Hotel at 81 Macleay Street, in which RODE Microphones owner Peter Freedman purchased the penthouse last year for a reported $16 million, have submitted plans to the City of Sydney to replace combustible Alucobond cladding around the ground-level entrances and some upper windows.
The proposed fix for Sydney’s Ikon tower in Potts Point will only reduce combustible cladding around high fire-risk areas, such as around apartment windows on the 13th floor.  James Alcock
Like many residential buildings of its era, the 185-unit building that won an industry award for urban renewal in 2004 is faced with the potentially costly task of replacing façade materials linked to building fires such as Lacrosse and Neo200 in Melbourne and London’s disastrous Grenfell Tower blaze. “The Ikon Apartments building presents a high risk of undue fire spread via the facade,” a report by consultancy RED Fire Engineers says.
“The building has a combustible external facade.”
