Yeah, I've been watching this story evolve over time. It is pretty interesting because the numbers are astounding. Sinking 16 inches in a decade, and it could double that in the future!

I have tried to imagine a way the building could be lifted again and supported all the way down to bedrock, but anything I think of risks making things worse while the repair is done and will be astronomically expensive.

This will continue to be very interesting to watch, though the story will take years if not decades to unfold.
