A broken window on the Millennium Tower’s 36th floor has city officials once again questioning the San Francisco skyscraper’s structural integrity. Although the city has backed off its threat to “yellow tag” or limit access to the building, the question remains as to whether the cracked window is indicative of a greater structural issue. Forum discusses the latest news about the Millennium Tower and what’s next for the 56-story building that has sunk 18 inches since 2009.
