At Risk in a Big Quake: 40 of San Francisco’s Top High Rises
A report by the U.S. Geological Survey includes a list of buildings that are potentially vulnerable to a large quake. Some of San Francisco’s most prominent high rises are on the list.
By Thomas Fuller
June 14, 2018

Experts consider these buildings vulnerable to collapse only in extreme shaking caused by rare and powerful earthquakes, similar to the one that struck San Francisco in 1906.

The list, buried among the seismic calculations of an appendix in the U.S.G.S. report, includes around 40 steel-frame high rises clustered in downtown San Francisco and built between 1960 and 1994, the approximate years when the flawed technique was employed. There are more than 200 high rises in the city.

homebucker - thanks for the story & link. I am glad to see that the Fox Plaza is not on the list as I live there. With that said the Fox Plaza is the midst of being braced for the next Big One.

^ Most structures can be retrofitted. It's more the cost that's the issue.

Was the former CAA building at 100 Van Ness retrofitted while it was open during conversion? If not, it would be unbelievable negligence.

really cool video, but lol at this clueless LA resident trying to tell hundreds of thousands of SF natives, living and dead, who use/have used the name "Frisco" for well over a century, that they can't call SF "Frisco".

Of course SF's upper class loves to perpetuate the "no Frisco" thing, though, and they control the messaging, because rich people control everything, as always...you know, the media, tourism industry , etc. So then you have tourists and transplants who get told not say Frisco, and they just go along with it, which is further reinforced by the fact that they're surrounded by fellow clueless newbies, in a city where only 20% of the residents are natives (let alone natives of the demographics who regularly say "Frisco"...a significant minority to be fair, but still a minority).
