According to the media report, authorities had demanded a comprehensive investigation and thus triggered the renewed evacuation of the high-rise building. According to the developer, icon, the building is "structurally sound". Nevertheless, residents were housed in hotels for up to ten days while experts examined the building.

The cracks had been reported from the tenth floor of the more than 30-story high-rise building. In addition, residents reported cracking noises and jammed doors. Icon assures residents of compensation. In the early morning hours of christmas day, many residents were allowed to return to their apartments. Out of fear, some still spent the night in their cars.

Criticism has now been voiced in australia about the fact that not only government authorities but also private building inspectors are allowed to approve buildings.
