What will eventually happen to the Millennium Tower in San Francisco? (Leaning NW at 3 inches/year)

According to this NBC article, it’s now about 26 inches off center and gaining 3 inches each year. The original attempt to stop the movement seemed to speed up the tilting and had to be stopped last summer.

Has this ever happened to a building of this size before?

Has all you want to know about it, I believe. I think they’ve found another solution.

After 500 years or so, it will be a world-famous tourist attraction.

This little extract from Wikipedia is rather disturbing …

In early September 2018, residents reported hearing various “creaking sounds”. At around 2:30 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, September 8, 2018, residents reported hearing a loud “popping sound”. On Sunday, the following day, a resident located in a corner unit on the 36th floor discovered a cracked window. The glass used in the building’s windows and facade is rated to withstand hurricane force winds, leading to concern that the crack was a symptom of a much larger structural failure.

Rather eerily reminiscent of the collapse of Champlain Towers South last year, although engineers have reportedly deemed the Millennium Tower safe, at least for now.
