I work a half block away and while I was coming back with lunch today I was looking at the Millennium Tower while waiting for a light. The structure is simply massive!!! Again, how does one fix a 58 floor skyscraper that is sinking and leaning????
And I don't want to hear that it is simply Monday morning quarterbacking to be attacking how it was built. No way. No way an extra heavy building of this type (concrete) should have been built this way (without going to bedrock) when clearly we are in earthquake country and the soil in this area is unstable landfill. It may be current code to build without going to bedrock, but I am saying the developer should have gone above and beyond by making the foundation extra strong. I don't care how much more it would have costed, but clearly at what these units sold for there was enough margin to do it. And for the developer to now go to bedrock at a nearby new development is telling. I just hope the owners are going to be made whole one way or another. It will be interesting how the whole darn thing plays out in the court room. This is not going to die anytime soon.
