(grant) developing tonight... there is a plan in the works to fix the infamous sinking and leaning millennium tower in san francisco. kron4's maureen kelly talked with the structural engineer behind the new plan... who says, the leaning... can be reversed. plans for the estimated 100- million dollar fix are being submitted to the city today. here's an illustration of what it will look like.the structual engineer behind this design involves installing more than 50 concrete and steele piles 250 feet down to bedrock under the corner of the foundation that's sinking.
it's referred to as underpinning that the engineer says is commonly used in construction.... what's unusual about this is the size of the building, very large and the capacity of the piles. each one of the piles is designed to resist 1,000,500 pounds of loadit's a solution that is expected not to only prevent the slow sink that's been happening....but also reverse it. by putting piles only on the north and west sides, we will allowed for continued additional minor settlements on the south and east sides which naturally happens with all buildings, and as it occurs we expect that some of the tilt that has occurred to the building in the past will actually come out of the building and allow it to become plumbut that could take as long as fifty years.this agreement was hammered out during mediation between the homeowners association and the luxury condo developer. those owners who've had to sell have taken a loss since this problem came to light and some critics say this expensive fix won't restore the building to it's former status. a realtor who says he sold a 13 million dollar penthouse unit after the problem was exposed disagrees.it's unlike any other building in san
francisco. i do believe it's going to come back and it is disappointing that units that i've had to have treated during this time have done so to discount, to be expected but i think that discount is going to disappear after the building is structurally correctif the design for the fix is approved construction could start in the spring. one lane of traffic on both mission and fremont will likely be impacted...possibly as long as the year and a half it's projected to take until the job is complete.maureen kelly kron4 news.
