- Millennium Tower keeps on sinking, but there may be a fix
By Matier & Ross - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
City officials and other sources familiar with the situation tell us that the building, which as of last year had sunk 16 inches since construction got under way in 2005, continues to descend into the bay fill at Mission and Fremont streets.The sinkage is more pronounced on the northern side, the direction in which the tower is leaning 2 inches at its base, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Millennium’s problems are the subject of numerous lawsuits.The good news for the tower’s well-heeled residents, who paid from $1.6 million to $10 million for their condominiums, is that a pair of engineering firms hired by developer Millennium Partners and other parties involved in the dispute think they have a solution that will stabilize the tower and prop it back upright.After we first reported the Millennium Tower’s problems in August, the developer insisted that its decision not to anchor the foundation to bedrock in the first place had nothing to do with the building’s sink and lean — and that the ground under the building had been destabilized by neighboring construction.The engineering firms estimate the fix will cost $100 million to $150 million — more than your average home foundation repair, but a lot less than the billion-dollar-plus price tag that some experts have feared.Like so many other things involving the slow-motion fiasco, just who would pay the bill would be the subject of negotiation, and possibly litigation, involving Millennium Partners, the homeowners association and the public agency building the Transbay Transit Center next door, which the developer and condo owners insist bears some responsibility.P.J. Johnston, spokesman for Millennium Partners, declined to comment on the talks or the latest engineering report, but said, Our highest priority has always been to fix the building.Jack Gallagher, a spokesman for the San Francisco city administrator’s office, which is reviewing all downtown high-rise construction in the wake of the Millennium Tower’s problems, said no repair plan has been submitted to the city for permits.Bill Strawn, spokesman for the Department of Building Inspection, said his office had just received the latest engineering report on the building’s slippage, and had sent it to the city’s data engineers for review.[...] he said, the department sent out a team of inspectors Tuesday to follow up on a report done six months ago detailing cracking and other damage from the building’s movement, and a list of repairs that needed to be done in the short term.Millennium Partners says the tower’s problems were caused by construction crews pumping groundwater from the adjacent site, which the developer says destabilized the soil under the tower.The transbay authority argues that the slippage has continued long after the pumping ended, proving that the culprit was the developer’s decision not to drive piles all the way to bedrock.About 100 condo owners got a small break this week, when city Assessor Carmen Chu began notifying them that their 2017 property-tax bills are being reduced by about $3,000 apiece — reflecting an average $320,000 drop in value on each of their units.
- Sound Off: Millennium Tower’s affect on Bay Area high-rise real estate
Friday Jul 28, 2017
A: The immediate effect is it may take more time and money to get projects through the city for new developments which is already a cumbersome and expensive process at best.. Those costs, unfortunately, will be passed through to the consumer. The longer term effects are the importance for everyone involved to accept they share culpability and to devise a solid plan to prevent this type of catastrophic event from happening again. We need a balance between cost-effective and sound construction methods to maintain viable commercial and residential structures. Developers and contractors need to be held to the highest standard of design and construction.

The network has secured the U.S. rights for three crime-focused shows — “100 Code,” “Shoot the Messenger,” and “Pure” — which will join the previously announced Anna Paquin-fronted “Bellevue” to add to the network’s stash of “primecrime” programming.When a high school hockey star wrestling with his gender identity goes missing and all signs point to foul play, Detective Annie Ryder (Anna Paquin) must unravel all the pieces to this gripping mystery before her own life falls apart.A gritty political-crime thriller centering on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police, “Shoot the Messenger” follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power.With help from her editor Mary Foster (Alex Kingston), co-worker Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant), and lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz (Lyriq Bent), Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.“Shoot the Messenger” is produced by Jennifer Holness and Victoria Woods for Hungry Eyes Film & Television Inc. in association with CBC Television and ITV Studios Global Entertainment.Inspired by true events, “Pure” is the journey of Noah Funk-newly elected Mennonite pastor-who is determined to rid his community of the scourge of drugs and its nefarious ties to a transborder smuggling alliance with ruthless Mexican cocaine cartels. NY, “Justified” as Detective Bronco Novak; and Oscar and Golden Globe Nominee Rosie Perez (“Search Party,” White Men Can’t Jump) as DEA Agent Phoebe O’Reilly.Developed by Academy Award winner Bobby Moresco (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), “100 Code” stars Dominic Monaghan (“Lost,” Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as New York Detective Tommy Conley and the late Michael Nyqvist (John Wick, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as the by-the-book Swedish detective Mikael Eklund.
