According to NBC Bay Area, the situation for the residents of the Millennium Tower in San Francisco has not improved, and is in fact even more disconcerting than ever before:
The owners could take no solace from the latest data taken in June from the rooftop of the 58-story building. It shows since November, the structure unexpectly tilted two and a half inches more to the west in just the first half of this year.
The data, compiled by the ARUP engineering firm brought in by officials of the nextdoor Transbay transit terminal project, suggest the structure is tilting twice as fast as it had been in earlier ARUP data. It is now listing at least 14 inches toward the massive Salesforce building going up nearby on Mission Street.
The data also show the building has sunk close to 17 inches at its low point, settling about an inch since the problem emerged last year.
So that’s bad news, but so is the fact that the County Assessor’s office has already knocked up to $300,000 off the assessed value of many units in the building.
This story is long from being resolved, that’s for sure.
