Re: San Francisco high-rise sinking, tilting

Here is a link to the video of the drone crashing.

The window washing system is apparently broken, thus the rappeling.

The reporter is in error. The leans is 14 inches, not two.

According to CurbedSF, the tilting of the building in the first half of 2017 was at a rate of 2.5 inches over that six month period. That brought the tilt to 14 inches, the numbers seem not to have been updated since. One can reasonably assume that if it had stopped sinking and tilting, it would be headline news in the San Francisco Chronicle.

The plaintiff's lawyers claimed in the summer of 2017 that the building could tilt an additional 8-10 inches over the next two years (from June 2017).
