Wow the second shot with the sunset reflecting off the W is stunning. The first image reiterates how much I hate that blank wall though

4 inches? Millennium Tower says, "Hold my beer."

Millennium Tower homeowners propose $100 million solution to sinking problem | SFChronicle.com

"One of the city’s flashiest luxury condo towers when it opened in April 2009, the Millennium, at 301 Mission St., has become notorious internationally over the past two years as San Francisco’s leaning tower, settling 18 inches and leaning 14 inches to the west."

They're filling missing glass in at the top, and in the photo above I see workers. So it looks like work is continuing

Ah the ol' Philly tradition of saying something is structurally wrong with a major building. Remember when the Comcast Tower was off plumb?
