Jay Paul Issues Statement To Say 181 Fremont Will Not Sink Like The Millennium Tower
Developers are scrambling to contain the fallout from the Millennium Tower’s unexpected sinking. Jay Paul Co, the developer behind 181 Fremont, issued a statement saying the building’s Arup-engineered foundation was far more stable since it drilled into bedrock. Jay Paul also stressed the building’s resiliency features that allow it to survive an earthquake, reports Curbed.
