This newly constructed Bird Streets Masterpiece, The Cork House, boasts expansive and incomparable views from all three floors courtesy of the rare 300 feet of frontage. The cork tree, a symbol of resilience and intention, served as an inspiration for the construction; a single tree was integrated into the home’s design early on. The contemporary design offers a spacious, open floor plan that includes 5 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, and a 4-car garage. Natural light pours throughout the nearly 10,000 square foot home from the Fleetwood automatic pocket doors and the floor-to-ceiling windows, making this house the embodiment of indoor-outdoor living. Entertainers will be delighted by the custom wine/tequila cellar, state-of-the-art Bulthaup kitchen, and multiple gathering spaces. The home offers a wellness alcove, wide plank walnut and Italian breccia stone floors, furnishings from top LA designers, fine art sculptures, and a subterranean projector room beneath the glass-bottom pool. Outside, approximately 5,000 square feet of patio space invite you to dine al fresco, watch the sunset from the glass-bottomed infinity pool, or relax in the secluded backyard jacuzzi. No detail was too small in creating a home that represented the highest standards in luxury.

A 58-story skyscraper in San Francisco is tilting and sinking — and residents say their multimillion-dollar condos are 'nearly worthless'


By Melia Robinson
Business Insider


Millennium Tower rises 58 stories above San Francisco's Financial District. The city's fourth-tallest skyscraper contains over 400 multimillion-dollar condo units. It soars 645 feet, giving residents with panoramic views of the Bay Area.

There's finally some good news for the wealthy residents of the leaning, sinking Millennium Tower: A fix may be in the works. Millennium Tower is a luxury residential high-rise that has sunk 17 inches and tilted 14 inches since it was completed in 2008. Though an inspection by the city showed it's safe to occupy, the situation has sparked an exodus from the building. Residents say they're scrambling to sell their million-dollar condos at a loss, with the value of their homes falling $320,000 on average.

Pedestrians inspect cracks near the sinking Millennium Tower in San Francisco, California.

In January, construction crews began drilling near Millennium Tower to see if a planned fix for the structure will work, NBC Bay Area reported. Engineers want to drill 100 to 150 new piles (a type of foundation shaped like a pillar) 200 feet down to bedrock from the building's basement, in order to stabilize the tower and prop it back upright. The project could cost $150 million.

The grand penthouse at Millennium Tower sold for $9.4 million in 2009.

Famous tenants have called Millennium Tower home, including Joe Montana, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, and Tom Perkins, the venture capitalist.

But residents weren't happy after learning in June 2015 that the building had sunk 16 inches into the soil and tilted 2 inches at its base.

In 2017, Millennium Tower sunk an additional inch and tilted another 2 1/2 inches. 


In 2017, Millennium Tower sunk an additional inch and tilted another 2 1/2 inches toward the massive Salesforce Tower that is under construction across the street.

The developers of Millennium Tower, Millennium Partners, argue that construction nearby is to blame for any sinking or tilting. A city transportation hub, the Transbay Transit Center, broke ground next door in 2016

The developers of Millennium Tower, Millennium Partners, argue that construction nearby is to blame for any sinking or tilting. A city transportation hub, the Transbay Transit Center, broke ground next door in 2010.

The new terminal — developed by the Transbay Joint Powers Authority, a transportation agency — includes a 60-foot hole for the train tunnel and an underground buttress.

A founding partner of Millennium Partners said at a press conference that there was "only one issue" — construction for the new terminal pumped too much water out of the ground. Dewatering is removing groundwater or surface water from a construction site to provide a safe work environment and prevent soil erosion.

The Transbay Agency released a statement in October condemning the allegations against it as a "distraction from the exclusive cause" of the tower's tilt: "inadequate foundation.    The statement says Millennium Tower's vertical settlement began two years before the Transbay Joint Powers Authority began any underground work. 

The Transbay Joint Powers Authority maintains it is not at fault in the building's sinking.

Some critics blame the city of San Francisco for allowing Millennium Partners to anchor the building 80 feet into packed sand rather than 200 feet down to bedrock.

Millennium Tower sits on an array of nearly 1,000 pillars shoved into the ground.
Its weight, combined with the resistance of the soil underneath, should keep it in place under most conditions, a professor of architectural design told the real-estate blog Curbed.

The design isn't all that unusual. Some of the city's best-known buildings, including the Embarcadero Center and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, were built on sand instead of bedrock.

The biggest cause for concern is the looming possibility of an earthquake.

For years,scientists have warned that the Bay Area is overdue for a devastating earthquake.
Millennium Tower sits on land prone to liquefaction, the process by which loose sand and 
silt behave like a liquid in the event of an earthquake. The seismic activity causes water pressure in the sediment to increase and grains of sand to lose contact with each other, according to the US Geological Survey. The soil may give out under large, heavy structures. 

Often, the solution for tall buildings in liquefaction zones is drilling down to bedrock. Millennium Tower's neighbors, the $1.1 billion Salesforce Tower and the luxury high-rise 181 Fremont, are both anchored to bedrock. They're still under construction.


There's good news and bad news for residents. A study released in January 2017 by the city's Department of Building Inspection found that the skyscraper was safe to live in.

There was no evidence of life-safety concerns observed during the inspection,"  the report stated.

Satellite images taken in 2016 that show Millennium Tower sinking suggested it will continue to sink at a rate of 2 inches a year. That's double what engineers estimated.

Gaps found in the walls of some units could also present risks in the event of a fire, according to a report commissioned by the building's homeowners association.

Gaps found in the walls of some units could also present risks in the event of a fire, according to a report commissioned by the building's homeowners association.

Last year, the building's homeowners association hired the firm Allana Buick and Bers to 

investigate a unit owned by Paula Pretlow. She and several other residents had complained of "unexplained odors permeating their luxury units," NBC Bay Area reported.

The consultants discovered openings around pipes and ducts in the walls. Typically, gaps like these are sealed with fire-resistant caulking to contain fires where they start.


If a small fire were to break out in the unit below Pretlow's, the flames could more easily spread to her condo, or smoke could damage the walls, according to NBC Bay Area.

The report pertained only to Pretlow's unit, though others could be susceptible.
Now a group of Millennium Tower residents are fighting to get their money back.

The  homeowners association has filed at least one class-action lawsuit against Millennium Partners and the Transbay Transit Center developers arguing that residents should be able to recover their losses in property value. The value of the multimillion-dollar condos has dropped $320,000 on average 

Now a group of Millennium Tower residents are fighting to get their money back.

People attempting to sell their condos have slashed listing prices — or disappeared from the market — since their skyscraper home made international headlines last year. Residents now say they are "stuck with nearly worthless condos," according to NBC Bay Area.  

As Millennium Tower keeps on sinking, its fate remains unclear.
