Construction on a fix for San Francisco’s leaning Millennium Tower came to a stop in late August because the fix was actually making the tower sink even more. Now it appears some of that damage could have been avoided.
The construction is partially back on track with some test drilling underway this week. Engineers have a plan to drill just two casings with a modified technique that they say will cause less vibration.
“Millennium Partners wanted to get the thing wrapped up,” said Robert Pyke, a geotechnical engineer and early critic of the current so-called “perimeter pile upgrade.” He says the $100 million plan to shore up the sinking tower should have been stopped months before it was.
