Following a recent inquiry, YIMBY has received an update from the Millennium Tower team about the progress of modifications to the original foundation in SoMa, San Francisco. Crews finished the installation of 18 piles by early 2022. Now, crews are working to tie the piles into the building. As for what this will do for the Millennium Tower, the principal engineer of the fix, Ronald Hamburger, says this work will “arrest its settlement and begin recovering tilt that has occurred.”
The eighth tallest skyscraper in the Bay Area planned or built is the Millennium Tower, a 645-foot tall residential building at 301 Mission Street in SoMa, San Francisco. Developed by Millennium Partners, the project was built between 2005 and 2009 opened as the tallest residential tower west of Chicago. Since 2016, the building has garnered international news for both tilting and sinking.
