SF taxpayers face steep legal bill over sinking, leaning skyscraper


By Nicholas Sakelaris, UPI

San Francisco's Millennium Tower is quickly becoming a boondoggle for city taxpayers, who may have to pay millions more to fix the sinking skyscraper.

The residential tower has sunk 18 inches and leans more than a foot to the side since it opened in 2009 -- physical changes the building's owners blame on the Transbay Transit Center across the street.

Taxpayer money will pay for Jones Day, an attorney defending the city from claims by the developer and residents that the Transbay Transit Center construction caused the 58-story luxury high-rise to tilt.

Nine lawsuits have so far been filed by parties to the case.
