San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana is a very unhappy man these days as it pertains to his $2.7 million San Francisco condo, located in Millennium Tower.
As reported by TMZ Sports, Montana is suing the developers of Millennium Tower over an ongoing problem in which the building is sinking and his condo is becoming increasingly slated.
“Montana says the tower has sunk 16 inches since it was completed in 2008 and his unit is ‘off level and the fit and finish of the unit are in disrepair.’ Joe says the problem is only going to get worse — and he’s pissed. Especially since he was contracted to promote the building from 2010 to 2015. Joe says builders knew about the problem since 2009 but hid the information from residents and buyers.”
The Tower has gained national infamy and has been called “the sinking tower of San Francisco.”
Because of where it is constructed, seismic activity could potentially be seen as the reason for all this displacement. However, as reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, Millennium Partners claimed an independent structural review carried out in 2014 “determined the settlement has not significantly affected the seismic performance of the building, and does not represent a safety risk.”
It’s going to be interesting to see what comes of Montana’s lawsuit.
