UPDATE: Another Downtown Tifilicious project seems to be having some issues

UPDATE: Damage was caused by a delivery truck backing into the building. Put away your Jenga.

A SouthDacola foot soldier sent this to me this morning, it’s behind Washington Square in the East alley. They said they couldn’t figure out what they were trying to fix, but there are braces holding up the bricks over the overhang that is below the parking ramp.

Jenga anyone?

It seems there are quite a few new projects around town with issues. Someone told me last month that a new office building built on that swampland by Good Sam headquarters had it’s windows popping out because it was sinking due to a poorly poured foundation. Shoddy work.

Someone asked me recently, “Have you seen how that new building across from the Pavilion is leaning?”

At the time, I thought what a strange thing to say.

Maybe not, might be worth a look.

Maybe SF could be known now as the town with the most knock off landmarks;

We have a replica of the Statue of David and the Swords of Baghdad going up soon and now the Leaning Tower of Washington.

It’s time to release the ‘Post Sim City’ video game. In it, some buidlings are rising while others are falling. There will also be a financial component to this game too, where you have to first successfully secure funding for new construction as the older buildings continue to collapse around you, with also Poltergeistic Seney Islands and past ash trees popping up from time to time in this game – throughout the city – in true Hammer Head fashion.

i’m surprised citibank built a new building, instead of just renting a p.o. box.

A delivery truck backed into the building that was making a delivery at JL Beers and damaged it 6 weeks ago. The block took some time to get in and get on the masons schedule. It was all on camera. Speculation wasn’t necessary.

Stopped to check on the progress last night. The repairs are being made and a new walk door is being added. The pipe jacks are in place to take the load off the existing structure during the repair. BTW, did it get a building permit?

Do you remember about 10 years ago when the new building at 9th and Minn. started to sink? Is it the same contractor?

“Yah Honey, a delivery truck backed into me…(“That’s it…”)”

Well, Grant is the owner of the building so I am willing to take his word for it.
